        Kentucky Coffeetree is just one of the many names for this wood. I worked on the railroad for 41 years an didn't know that it is sometimes used for making railroad ties. I seen it at the store today and it is very nice looking but now not to sure how it will cut. Tryed to post a link to the web site were I got the info but this site would go away each time I tryed. Here is there address: woodworkerssource.com The wood is used for a lot of different things besides ties.

                  4/4 means the wood is a full inch thick.

                    Nice haul for a great price. Now mark the ends with species so you don't forget next year what wood is what.

It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                        Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                        Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                        HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
