I got some chunks of wood from the neighbor the other day and I’m at a loss as to what species they are.
The first piece is basically a 2×4, 36” long. Very heavy, density is 1.1 grams/cc.
This next piece is a poser. Dark chocolate brown, I can see a hint of redness in it. The open pore grain reminds me of the grain of Mahogany. It is also very dense, 1.1 grams/cc. Nice sized block 4×5x14 inches. The second picture is a paint stamp or freehand stamp that has no meaning I can figure out. End grain is also fairly nondescript with no real growth rings present (tropical? Ipe?).
I have some Ipe boards, but their grain is more distinct and the color is a tad lighter.
Last is actually three pieces, several foot long 2×4s and a 2×6. Density is 1.0 grams/cc
Anyhoo, a tip o’ the hat to all who can offer suggestions.
