Subject:
What is jacaranda?

David Weaver
I do recall that you showed those pictures. There's even more gas left in the tank than that with some experimentation. You can get the process of sharpening down to absurdly short, and the results are carnival-like in effect.

Jacaranda is an interesting name. If that word is on a customs list into the US, it can cause seizure as the name is used for dalbergia nigra (Braz. rosewood) in some overseas markets.

Curious as to what the wood is and what its characteristics are.
