Isn’t that very hard and tough to work?

With Ironwood in the name I’m going to assume yes lol

I have the sizes on the pieces. I have a few more. Ironwood sells for around $12 a lb… I am happy to hear offers.

Pm if you like.

Yes ironwood is very dense. This has a good mix of sapwood and heartwood. The sapwood is also dense, but not as much as the heartwood. Also ironwood has a distinct smell as it is being worked.

I am selling a large flat rate box as full as I can get it for $150. The box I packed was about 22lb so about $7/lb. Ironwood is about 6-7lb per bf. These are estimates. I hope this helps.
