I recently had to go to Ohio because I had an uncle pass away. My aunt wanted me to go through his shop and take some woodworking things back with me. I came across these 3 pieces of lumber that I though I would make something special out because it was his. My aunt told me that many years ago my uncle had done some work for someone that worked in Indonesia. He had brought some lumber from Indonesia to use in his house. My uncle was allowed to keep the leftovers after he completed the job. Now it is possible that my aunt could have been confused due to the dealing with all of this and not thinking clearly but that is the back story I got. Here are some pictures of the wood lightly sanded and I hit part of them with some denatured alcohol just to bring the color out.
Solved – Asian/African Mahogany
Still not a clue
Solved Morado/Bolivian Rosewood
The first one seems to be about the density of maple. It is about 8/4×6”-7” wide
I will try to get some actual weights on the board, maybe it will help identify it
Added some more pictures of the 3rd board a pew posts into the thread showing the color a little better in some natural sunlight
