I don't know anything about 'Quebracho' but, I'll betcha Jim will tell you it is also known under half a dozen other names. He is quite the (genuine) expert on the subject of exotic woods.

I lost contact with Jim several years ago. Now, apparently, his web site is defunct also. He helped me a lot with info about South America, particularly Peru. A novel I am yet to complete is set in Peru and based almost entirely on information he sent me. To not digress, the wood in question may have many names. This happens a lot in South America whenever a new scientist 'discovers' a previously unknown (to him) tree species. And, Jim told me that in SA there are many trees that "grow like grass" but despite being fast growers are incredibly hard. And, many (many-many) are highly toxic and prohibited from harvesting and export. But, that is a big BUT, there it is a huge industry to illegally export these toxic woods under false names. So, whenever working with woods from SA, take precautions.

I bought a block at the Fort Worth Woodcraft a couple of weeks ago.
