Not a scientist but here’s from the Cumaru entry of

Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): .86, 1.09

So to me that looks like sometimes it’ll float, sometimes it’ll sink. If I’m reading it right, floating or sinking is not necessarily a bellwether for cumaru.

To me it looks like cumaru, which I’ve laid my deck with. And there is a notable smell to cumaru, especially when cut. Never worked with Jarrah yet.
