I am making a gift for my wife and using a bunch of scrap. I got a stick of this at a garage sale a year ago and still do not know what it is.

From Left to right

White oak, Purple heart, Unknown wood, White oak, Unknown wood, Purple heart, White oak, Mahogany, Unknown wood,

Any ideas what the Unknown wood is? it is almost as hard as the Purple heart and feels ferry slimier with a hand plane.

Kinda looks like Granadillo, but would need to see better pictures. Could be a few different things.

Have your say...
