    Density

    I would be curious about the density of this material, most hardwoods for camera use are about 30-35 pounds per cubic foot. What is the density of this material? tim

    I will talk to my father-in-law about it. He's in the marine industry. Thanks for the info, even though I have no idea what all of those specs mean.
