    I want to know how Vertigo and Quantumcloud figured it out.
    I would have guessed curly mango or ???? if I hadn't known.

    I became very familiar with eucalyptus when I talked my boss into spending a few thousand on some fresh cut logs.
    Looked like nice wood but it moves like crazy when drying.
    Took about 5 years and about 90% waste.
    I play a wooly butt didgeridoo, and when I read the post, I looked over at my didge, looked over at your post, looked at my didge, and said...hey , what the heck

    Im jealous

    Eucalyptus would have been my guess...Only because i have a few blocks in the shop It does have mango style grain structure though. The eucalyptus i have is red though...

    I am glad you like it.
    On a side note; stabilized Redwood Burl has been one of the woods that has increased in demand the most over the past couple years.

    A lot of people (myself included) take redwood for granted just because it is a name we are used to hearing.
    But they don't think about the fact that Redwood only grows in a limited area making it sort of a rarity.
    Plus it being protected and most of the good stuff comes from salvaged stumps and old stashes.
    80%+ of the places we used to get redwood from are gone now.
    I figure it will only be a handful of years before I am unable to get any of the good stuff except for old stock that someone has stashed.

    I know this is a late response but....
    The only people who play a didgeridoo around here tend to have dreadlocks and the cigarettes they smoke have an aroma that smells like a cross between a skunk and a Christmas tree.
