I think I was starting to go through withdrawals.
Finally a new batch of wood back from getting stabilized by K&G.
I don't remember exactly what is in this batch but I think there was some really good stuff.
Won't know for sure till I get these cleaned up.

Do you ever have blocks of wood that you can no longer identify?

Not in a long time, but there have been numerous ones that I wouldn't have been able to identify if I hadn't been the one to cut the wood when it was fresh.
Some of the woods have so many variations in how they look that you would never be able to guess without seeing what it was cut from as well as the bark and leaves.

Two out of threee ain't bad.


Well, this batch doesn't look like much yet. But just you wait.
These are ones that I have started to clean up. At 36 grit even dark stuff looks really light.

You are correct.
The Walnut are the ones I am cleaning up first.
Here is a bad photo of good Walnut. The individual photos will be better........I hope.

Nice - I would not have guessed walnut from the first set of pics.

Here are a few example blocks from this batch of walnut.
All of these were cut from the same chunk of walnut no more than a foot apart from each other.

Here are a few I like from the 2nd half of the batch. I still have to measure and price these before I can get them into the store.

I have just finished adding the first half of the new batch of walnut to the store.
These are the smaller, less expensive ones. Most are about $35 or $40. Tomorrow I will add the rest of the blocks. They will cost a little bit more than these first ones.

This link will take you to where they are in the store if you would like to take a look. (http://www.burlsource.us/servlet/the-Brand-New-Pieces/Categories)

Mark, which woods don't need to be stabilized before use?

The main ones that I do not get stabilized are ironwood, rosewoods and african blackwood.
Some people go by "If you can dent the wood surface with your thumbnail, get it stabilized".
The reason I get a lot of woods stabilized that might be ok without getting stabilized is increased durability and easier to get a good finish.

Today I am cleaning up the remainder of this new batch of stabilized wood.
It doesn't look like much right now, but it will. I am keeping the piece on the far right for my stash.

The piece on the left looks like a mallee to me. Just a guess.

The one on the far left is buckeye. The one on the far right is mine.

Here is the Bog Oak cleaned up. Another bad photo. If I keep this up people are going to think I borrowed Spike's camera.

My dog makes that same noise. Usually when I am holding the box of doggie treats.
