A wooden floor manufacturer who has become a friend since living here in China gave me about half a cubic meter of wood offcuts each piece measuring around 35×25 x 5cm.
It was on a visit to his factory to pick up some teak I found him clearing up things in a warehouse. He pointed out some wood and asked if I could use it and as “free” is always affordable I loaded it up. He wasn’t sure but thought it had come from Africa about 10 years previous for a flooring project and some offcuts had been left stacked in a dark corner.
The wood is quite hard, turns well and gives off sort of a medicinal smell when cut. I’ve tried to photograph an accurate description of it so I hope someone out there recognises it. If there’s anything I forgot to add please ask.
Thanks for any help.
