Back about 1990, some crates of EPDM rubber bales cane to where I worked. The company decided to try some from Brazil. These crates were made up of 3” wide, tongue&groove boards. Kind of a dull brown in colour. When the crates were empty, we were to just throw them out…..ah, I don’t think so.
Anyway, some made to my woodshop ( don’t ask any questions…) and I started to make a few projects out of this wood. A few things turned up:
Can’t sand it smooth, but a scraper will leave a polished shine,
Of all the projects I made from this stuff, I have one that I can get pictures of:!https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/lgzha6f.jpg!
Any ideas whatpasses for “crate wood” down in Brazil?
