I got a present in the mail today! It is a wonderfull box of wood from fellow LJ Hacksaw007 We had talked about me getting some of his scraps and he sent it out to me as a gift! I thank you very much, Mike.

Here are a couple of pics of the wood.

This is a very special present for me. I have been wanting to get some of this wood ever since I first saw it.

Can’t wait to give it a turn.

Thank you again Mike for a very generouse gift.

Stuff for next year’s Mardi Gras? Maybe some Easter bunny bowls? ;0) Real unique looking.

Scrappy: I’ve never seen a tree that looks like that. You have some very rare species. Do you have the name for the tree.

Congratulations for naming the giver of you wood surprise. A great gift.

Thanks for the comments. This is what I have seen as “Diamond Wood”. It is used in lots of things but mostly gun stocks.

Hacksaw007 was nice enough to send me some scraps from the company he works for making gun stocks. Very tight plys on this stuff. Think it will be a joy to turn. Should be some VERY interesting patterns abd colors.

Will post as soon as I get something turned.

It’s called Colorwood from Rutland Plywood. Birch plys alll running the same direction, so it lathes like solid wood. Very hard, easy to turn. You can check out the gun stocks that we make at:

I would like to have some scraps also, if they are throwing them away. Nice and good job on the cup!

Have your say...
