Blue, I love this wood but it is so incredibly dense. What are common things it’s been used to make?

Hey CT, yep very dense and dry like these pieces even more. Smoking pipe, calls, pool cues, boxes, carvings turning things, i guess its up to the artist. Ive only made fishing rod handles and a few lathe chisel handles because of weight. inlay also. I can trim a side so the log slides along bandsaw table easier for resaw.

Thanks. I’ve got an ironwood cactus carving and wanted to try something like that sometime. Was in Mission a few months ago. Live way up in DFW. Unfortunately, I need to hold back on my lumber purchasing right now.

that looks very similar to the Grenadillo wood I brought from Cuba when I was stationed there with the Navy.
it was harvested in 1977 and is incredibly dense. used for wind instruments such as clarinets.
very difficult to keep any kind of clear film finish on a project that gets used a lot.
