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.

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

  The grey comment led me to think that even though I have never sawed any. I understand magnolia and holly turn grey quickly after sawing unless very special handling and a lot of luck is applied. I guess I lose out on another prize to re-gift.

It is the dark band at the terminus of each growth ring.  It is what gives it that nice grain.  Yellow Poplar (in the Magnolia family) has a single band, so it is not as distinct as what you see in your pic of the magnolia.

That's the part that reminded me of the redwood.  Second growth redwood often grows very fast. I've seen 3/4" wide growth rings with the "dark band at the terminus of each ring."

My first thought was tulip. Makes sense considering they are in the same family. I knew tulip wad in the magnoliaceae family,  but i would never have thought of magnolia,  as i never knew it was a sawable species.
