Unknown Type Of Wood *PIC*

Dick Parr
>Got this wood at the BBQ this year and no one knew what kind of wood it was. It was very dry and very light in weight. This had to be the worst wood for tear out that I have ever turned. No matter what method I tried I could not lessen the tear out. Spent at least 2 hours just sanding. I decided to try something different with the ogee rim.

It finished out at 8-7/8" x 4" and 3/8" thick. It was buffed with the Beall system.

Thanks for looking.
