    Hi again,

    SchwinnParamount: I don't know the real name for it but will look it up. It looks more like canarywood without the red stripes but no oil to it and is harder. Tougher than teak with no oil but not as hard as bloodwood, cocobola or purpleheart. Very close grain so it planes off like glass. It is heavier than oak. I guess now I have to correct an oversight, a cruel twist of fate, and build an 11X14 Agfa/Ansco field camera.

    Try:
    ebay other lumber

    and search for 'brazillian'. I've never been burnt on wood from ebay sellers but the shipping is a killer.

    One wood stand on top of all others: Cherry from the northern most island of Japan. It's a wind driven cold harsh environment that produces the most dense and stable Cherry wood in the World.

    Hi there,

    "Brazillian oak" is tauari wood, find info at:

    www.rmfp.com/hard.html

    Also check ebay item #8229336417 and don't cry, be happy for the winner. These should go to Tenn. and become a Les Paul Special. Damn they're pretty.

    Have a good day people.

    That is some gorgeous figure.

    Early this morning I cut my first boards ever from a raw piece of log. I have much more respect for the sawmill than I did before. I quartersawed some green Douglas Fir that I pulled out of the firewood pile at our favorite weekend getaway. My what a lot of work for a tiny amount of usable lumber. My 14 inch bandsaw was hard pressed to even cut through 10 inches of raw log.

    I'm done sobbing now. That's gorgeous wood. My next camera will be made from either a: cherry from a tree in northern Japan, b: Tauari c: from that black ash that I'm going to drive all the way to the ebay winners house to get by bribery or balderdashery (dunno what that means but it was a 'b' word and I felt the need to aliterate).

    Or maybe just learn how to buy lumber at the lumber store. If this were not a special case (a lady who has been very good to us had a tree lying in her yard) then I would never have tried making lumber that I can buy. I guess Schwinn Paramount is going to make some boards out of an old Walnut log he has and hopefully that will cure him as well.
