Worked on a job utilizing this species recently. Looks like a knotty pine, very brittle but easy to work, which brings to the question: this stuff smelled amazing. Like a perfume that I definitely want my wife to wear.

FFW to today. Had a few more boards come in and whenI went to mill it, the smell was completely gone. .
Does this stuff always have a very distinct odor or was this just a batch of boards that, while they looked like Aussie Cypress, were some other species?

Interesting, do the boards that used to have the smell smell again if you plane a fresh surface?

No, the boards that smelled different had a distinctively different appearance as well. The first order never stopped smelling awesome. Second batch smelled – not terrible, but nowhere near as good. I’m thinking our supplier may have slipped us a mickey on this one.

Have your say...
