Timbers new to me…

Yesterday I had a visit from a friend who brought me some timbers I have not used before.

The following photos are of the different timbers that he brought…

White mahogany -Eucalyptus acmenoides

Jarrah -Eucalyptus marginata

BlackButt -Eucalyptus patens

Karri -Eucalyptus diversicolor

Wenge -Millettia laurentii

    Really beautiful wood Larry, yea, what are you going to do with it.

  3. Nice wood. I see multiple projects of beauty coming out of these

  4. I’m surprised you’ve never worked with Jarrah. It seems to be the only Australian wood if you follow Derek Cohen 🙂
