Can you identify this wood?
Even without a pic, I'm betting one of you guys can tell me what this is but, unfortunately, I can't confirm any guesses.
I bought a load of mixed hardwoods from a guy that owned a small trim business. He was retiring and selling everything he had.
What I got was mostly oak. Then there's this other stuff that I've started building a bookshelf with. It looks kinda like oak but it's as lightweight as poplar. When I machine it, it smells mediciny, like muscle cream or something. Does that give it away? I hope so, because I don't know what this is. If I have to, I'll get a pic, but I don't have a digital camera so it'll take a little while.
I'd appreciate any input.
