Help! I can’t stop making these things!
I wonder if anyone recognizes this wood?
I bought a pickup load of exotic shorts a while ago and this was in it. Cream colored with streaks of pink and purple. It’s very hard, stringy, doesn’t machine very well and has a distinctive fruity smell when you cut it. Also fills the room with smoke! carves nicely though and sands and polishes up nicely. Finished nicely with just paste wax.
-- How it happened that Mastro Cherry, carpenter, found a piece of wood that wept and laughed like a child.
