Identify this Wood
« on: July 03, 2022, 09:32 AM »
I purchased some lumber at an estate auction.
There were several boards that I do not know what wood it is.
It is very hard & heavy & a reddish pink color.

It's pretty generic of a guess, but some kind of Rose wood? How wide are those pieces?

It looks like a eucalyptus, but again, just another guess.

The boards are about 6 1/4" wide.

I believe you are correct. Thank you for the link. From information on the website, it looks to be Lyptus.
