This is some wood I got from a job that was on so valueable every scrap had to be saved for three months after it was installed I watched as it was sat unstickered in a east window rained upon, stacked upon, I saved it from the dumpster twice, kicked over and I would go over and restack it(I’m an electrician), lunch upon get this crap outta the way upon, and I would always say I’d love to have that wood I’ll get out of the way” We have to keep it it is valuable” was always the answer.
after seeing $1000 slabs of Italian marble thrown in the trash I told the SI again I’d love to have that wood and will get it out of the way his answer Jay you should take that stuff to the dumpster or your truck what ever is closer.
So I took it home and have been using it for this and that ever since I am down to several small scraps, a couple of pieces of venneer I cut and a 5/4” x6”x 8’. The question still remains what is it.!http://http://s640.photobucket.com/albums/uu123/jaym540/?action=view&current=wood002.jpg(b)!:http://s640.photobucket.com/albums/uu123/jaym540/?action=view&current=wood002.jpg

It is heavy and dense. It also stinks to the high heavens when cut and wrecks planer blades quick.
