And the gentleman who owned it. Picked up a few pieces of some nice wood while craiglisting.


Wood Hardwood Plywood Lumber Tree



The seller threw in some pieces that he was not sure of what it was. Any suggestion?

THe bottom two are very likely imbuia. The top one looks exactly like zebrawood except that the color is wrong.

A cleaned up end grain shot would help
Phinds - the first one is zebra wood according to the seller. I wonder if the lighting had an effect. It was the one you said may be imbuia that was of question. I will ger some better shots this evening.

Thanks

Not through the app unless something isn't operating properly. I am even having trouble seeing my own pics from this thread. Thanks for the link.
Too funny. I saw this website when I googled the wood. Just didn't know it was yours.

Ohhhh

not really. you need to clean it up so it shows the grain.
Now I see said the blind man, you mean clean up the wood, not the picture. Brain laps there - sorry. Will do.

I did take a look at your sight (bookmarked for future references). It does look like a few of the photos you have for imbuia. Thanks for helping me figure it out.

Good job! Not imbuia after all and I'll need to poke around and see can I figure out what it IS instead of just what it isn't, but tonight I'm off to bed early
Maybe monkey pod. Stopped by wood workers source today and saw something similar
