I started working on these boards last year, they are for the bedside pedestals. I don’t know the name of the the wood but I do know it is very hard. I have spent the last 3 days sanding these boards and I have gone through sand paper faster than a hobo through a meat pie.

While I was busy with this blog Honey was busy chewing something, I went over to investigate and there on her towel is a chewed up tube of super glue and she is busy chewing the cap. I dont know how much super glue she swallowed. She went into the workshop and took the tube off the table. She seems to be ok. I gave her a rawhide bone to chew.

Cher,
That wood is gorgeous! Looking forward to seeing your project with it.
Watch that pooch… super glue is tough stuff!

The wood sure is beautiful. Some of it almost looks like walnut but it doesn’t look quite dark enough.

Hope Honey is OK.

If it’s Imbuia I think it’ll have a peppery smell when cut.

Hi All, ellen35 and lew Honey is fine thank you. I dont think she swallowed much I think most of it landed on her towel. pommy I got an idea from Wetherlys. GMan It is just a reflection. David Thank you for the info. JAGWAH It does smell peppery. Mario Do you have a drum sander? If not perhaps we can put our heads together and make 2.
I am hoping to darken the wood without stain, any suggestions?

the imbuia i started with ,
was kind of brownish grey ,
after the finish ( poly ) ,
it looks like walnut and is more deeper brown ,
without the slight grey .
it really is very nice ,
the grain jumps right out !
