    Apart from Chris (Works in Wood) I wonder how many people know what wood this is. It's from a fairly well know tree but not seen much and as far as I know it is mainly turners who use it. Never seen it in furniture anyway

    This is just from a small branch.

        Of course. An extra hint is that the 'knot' is typical and goes right through to the other side.

          I'm not quite sure about the "never seen it in furniture" clue as the colour and marking reminded me of something similar to pine... so is it something like that? I hadn't really thought about the knot but that also wouldn't look out of place in a piece of pine.

            It is a kind of pine but not just any old pine.

                  That sounded sneaky!!

                  I didn't know that chilean pine was the proper name for monkey puzzle tree... you learn something new every day.

                    ooh does that make it expensive, I decided a while back that I wanted a monkey puzzle tree for the garden (so I knew it was chilean pine!) but they were so expensive to buy and slow growing that I gave the idea up!

                      They are if you buy a tree and the wood is expensive to buy but as usual I managed to get a 4' log free & gratis. The donor kept the trunk mind. That will be gorgeous.
