Ken you'll have to ask Gene what species of walnut it is. The bottom block is lace wood.I thought it was an excellent example of American Black Walnut - OR, is it a different walnut? There are several different walnuts, and they all have some nice wood to them. That really looks good.
BTW, what is the bottom block?
I received a present from my secret Santa, aka Peter Martin and I'm thrilled with the wood he sent me. I've been trying to post a picture of it but can't for the life of me figure out how to do it. It asks for a URL and I just have it on a thumb disc. Anyway, if some one can guide me to a guide here I'd really appreciate it.
In the mean time, Peter, thanks for the great gift. I've been wanting to try out the Osage, and now I can. Plus some other very nice blocks and scales.
Happy New Year.
