So I was really lazy and bought a box of wood scraps from “Woodchucks Wood” on Amazon. I likely won’t do it again if I can get motivated to find a local place to get scraps from, but I’m pleased with the variety and am happy with the box overall. I’m not sure what all of it is, but was really happy with all the thin Black Walnut. Three thicker pieces were warped, but the rest is usable. (I also bought a strip of purple heart from the same seller.)
Anyone know what the really porous, wormy kinda stuff is (3rd and 4th pic.)? Don’t know if it’ll work for detail laser stuff, but maybe work as a veneer. It’s pretty though and I imagine the grain is gorgeous once finished.
The color is way off in my crappy cellphone pics.
