  • been out of commission

    I had a somewhat minor stroke three years ago and haven't done much sawing in that time. I lost part of my vision in my left eye and it's taken me awhile to adjust. I use a type of magnifier over my eyes now and that's helped. Haven't visited this site for almost three years. A lot of changes!! It will take me a bit to figure things out. Glad to find it online tonight!

      If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

      The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.
