Well, since we already know that number 4 was going to be Alder, might as well skip it and move on to 5.

This one has to be more specific than the generic group. I want it down to the actual species as it’s a very large family of trees. It doesn’t have to be the latin name, but I do want the specific common name.

This is a very dense and hard wood and is one that I enjoy milling the most.

Same rules as before.

Good luck everyone.

Thread title says 6, thread text says 5. Just saying. My guess is African Blackwood. Or Alder.
