A guy who I get Hawaiian woods from sometimes sent me an unusual piece of wood today.
It was a chunk that had been split off of a log with the cut parts showing burn marks from the blade.
The piece was no bigger than 7" x 4" x 5" and felt like I was holding a rock.
The split surfaces were like a washboard so I knew there was something good inside.
In the end I was able to get one small and one normal sized block.
The block on the scale is about 6&1/2" x 1&5/8" x 1&1/8"
I don't know what kind of wood this is.
Cutting the wood was tougher than cutting ironwood. It had a spicy smell when I was cutting. Kind of like Ringed Gidgee.
What do you all think? Should I try to get more of this?
and.....does anyone know what it is?
I left a message on voice mail and am waiting to hear back so I can ask the guy who sent it to me.
