  • Wood identification

    Once again I stumbled onto a site.
    If you are ever trying to identify a sample of wood check out http://www.oceanacoustic.com/veneer-sampler.html
    Just slide your mouse over the picture of the wood sample and it will tell you what it is. A note to people withg dialup, this is a graphic intensive site. I would LOVE to have some of each veneer

    Interesting site, but there's a few hundred species missing!

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

      Reminds me of my Geology class days. Look at the rock, feel the rock, taste the rock... What kind of rock is it? One of too many species I can't remember.

        We did the same in biology Grizz. Look at the toad, feel the toad, lick the toad. I don't remember much after that

            This link has more pictures and much better information.

              I saw a lot of different species, as I salvage as much wood as I can from the land fills. Tho I've gotten good, it's not unusual for me to run into something I can't quite identify.

              The University of Wisconsin, Madison, allows you to send up to 4 samples of wood, per year, for them to identify, free of charge.

              It's a great service.

                  That certainly will be a challenge, Since the wood appears to be well preserved, it will interesting to identify the wood - cedar or locust ???

                  They say great minds think alike. I wanted to order the ones you sent me to try. I’ll be placing an order over the week-end for the #3 double skip and others. Bruce’s free tickets to Dover this week-end for the races may just cost him for leaving me here by myself for 3 days! And I got them in 2...
