What wood is this.....aired dried for 27 months
« on: May 17, 2017, 08:13:55 pm »
I sawed cants of varies sizes 27 months ago.
Today I pulled it out and sawed it into lumber.
2x 6 and 2 x 8 inch table slabs.....no live edge.

12% mc in the center.

This stuff is beautiful. I love the Gray tint.  My first time drying and resewing this species.

Do you recognize it?

A soft wood, except for the grayness, it looks quite a bit like redwood.

 The showey grain and the wide growth rings remind me of Catalpa but the gray color is throwing me off.

Plasticwood from the industrial tree? Been chewed on by a goat and then ''resewed''? Maybe its fabric wood from the textile tree?
