Hey, fellow LJs!
We had a customer send some wood to be used in a set of rings for himself and his wife. The wood comes from New York. The customer isn’t sure what kind of wood it is.
From what I can tell, this must have been a fallen limb. It has some spalting going on and the wood is just prior to becoming “punky”. I cut some very thin strips and it looks like I will indeed be able to bend it successfully, but I will use a stronger wood as a lining. (The wood is quite soft – reminds me of Poplar.)
Any ideas what it might be?
Thanks for the help, guys!
