I found this wood at my lumber yard and thought it looked awesome so bought a piece, Ive started making a box with it just to see how it works and I have been trying to work out what kind of wood it actually is! You see, Im in Spain and I obvoiously buy wood using the Spanish name. This one was sold to me under the name “Lati” but on searching the net the results I find for this wood dont make the colour, grain pattern or anything else.
My next guess was Larch but I am less than convinced of that either.
The wood works beautufullly, has very open grain and actually looks better before sanding than after! (the dust fills the pores) it does splinter quite easily and is also quite dense.
(The box edges are Sicamore in case anyone is interested)
