My dad dropped this stuff off in my "blank box" and I made a spindle out of it… I love it and want more.

It creates a yellow dust with fine silica (sparkly) bits in it when sanded.



What is it?

It came as a 1×1 and looked to be old and beat up, so I don't have a clue where it came from… I thought that the yellow dust would be a clue. It's YELLOW… like rust or tumeric.

My dad called me out of the blue today and told me that it is Ipe! IRONWOOD. Woo!

I like it a lot and enjoyed working with it. I did notice that my nose ran and a dust mask was a necessity.
