  • Looking for Alowood

    Saw an article Bob wrote on it and I would like to try it out. Anyone know where I can get some?

    Thanks

    Hmmm.. when I go to www.alowood.com, my virus scanner freaks out. Let me see what I can find (I wrote that article many, many years ago).

      I went there and I got an ad from GoDaddy that the domain name is for sale. Looks like they are it around by that name anymore. Closed up or bought up!

        Here's something I found.
        http://www.woodcentral.com/woodworki...how-to-get-it/

        I couldn't find anything on the two websites referenced in the link, so I'm reaching out to them to see if it's still available.

        It's a shame if it's no longer available because the wood was pretty interesting. I've still got a piece of the ebony, and there has been no warping or twisting even after all of these years.

          And, just heard back from Ednesaw. Alowood is no longer available. I've pulled the article down.

          I'm sorry. I should have double checked before allowing that article to go live.

          Best Regards,

            Dave--
            Bob cut it into extinction!
            Must have been some kind of special cellulose.

              If I remember correctly from years ago (that's dangerous!) the wood was "french fried" in an oil. So one could take a softwood and put it in a deep fryer for a specific time and the wood would come out looking much more colorful and harder. Don't know what oil but assume a light vegetable oil may work. An interesting experience I may look at after the holidays.

                This reminds me of brunite wood we obtained in Northern CA until the mill burned down, so was no longer available. I don't remember what wood they started with and heated it until it turned a beautiful brown and easy to cut. I really liked it.
