Mille regardz Posted December 22, 2019 Report Share Posted December 22, 2019 (edited) My aunt recently gave me a piece of wood, because after 20 years of having it and plans to carve it laying around, she doesn't expect to ever take up wood carving... The wood has a density of ca. 1 kg/dm^3, and is quite hard; I can't make any visible dent in it using my fingernail. It seems like it could be used for fittings, or maybe even a fingerboard, but I would like to know what type of wood it is, and if others have had some success in using this type of wood. I have planed two sides flat, and despite the wood being quite hard, it wasn't too difficult to plane. The shavings didn't seem to have a distinct smell.
