One of the guys in my turning club got some engineered lumber from his son-in-law.

This bowl measures 4 3/4” in diameter and is 2 1/4” tall. Finish is 5 coats of polyurethane.

This stuff dulls tools in a hurry and throws off a lot of dust, so sharpen up and turn on your dust collector. It also soaks up finish like crazy!

Looks good! I believe that type is called timberstrand.

Correctamundo! It is used as rim board, headers, beams, columns, wall framing, sill plates, and stair stringers.

I would just be guessing on that … this is a commercially available construction product from Weyerhauser.
