Species Identification?

Postby politicaldog » Thu Dec 17, 2015 11:36 am

Can anyone ID this wood? This was out in the weather for years and I reclaimed it and milled down a few. It has no finish, sanded lightly and under a Halogen Light source.

My family has lineage in woodworking and a member even still owns Monceret's Fine Woodworking out of Louisiana. I sent him this pic and he is pretty certain that it is Spanish Cedar. He does a lot work with exotic woods and is pretty knowledgeable in the subject. I also did a google search for "Spanish Cedar Wood Grain" and found a very similar image as the ones you have posted. I hope this helps you.
