Hoadley covered this, and I always wondered where, if one existed, I could get a fairly exhaustive thumbnail reference book for North American woods? He referenced quite a few himslef but of course there are dozens and dozens that are here even in my little ol neck of the woods. Anyone know of such a reference?
Is there a certain area of cross-grain needed to make the ID, typically?Would a 2" x 2" piece suffice for most species, or can someone use the end of a 1" board and find enough?
even saw one fellow mix up balm-of-gilead for red oak.
I have another unknown for you to ID. This is a dark grained wood I found at the local hardwood mill. They use it for stickers and this was in the broke, trash pile. Let me say this up front, I do not have a clue as to what this is, but for some reason, I want to say it resembles mahogany.I scanned this chip in, it is ½ x ¾ inches.(Image hidden from quote, click to view.)
While I am definitely not an authority figure on wood identification, I think this looks very much like what we in America would call ebony.
