I might ask where you obtained the stuff from?
I bought a bag of mixed exotic woods about 30 years ago and I've just come across it again. Unfortunately none of it is identified. These two pieces were the most interesting in my opinion.

If sanding it doesn`t release a distinctive smell , pleasant to my nose but maybe not yours , I don`t think it will be amboyna . Red mallee , possibly .

Looks like I'm going to have to have a good sniff.

I don't think that your wood pieces are from anywhere near Australia, and while the first pic does resemble the Amboyna when wet, the second pic doesn't match it so, I don't really know.

But what made me post, was about the observations made about the possible smell of this particular wood and how one can explain it/define it. Has been many years since I've heard some news conversations about being able to send smells through the computer and the way it was explained, would be a special box with a mix of aromas controlled by computer, when necessary a code or a name would be given to the person in the conversation/discussion and that person would put that number/name in the software of the "smell's box" and it would release a spray/mist of the specified smell..!

I think that would be a great thing to have, it would be very helpful in situations like these however, I wonder what sort of "aroma" it would come out for a "fart"..!

Cheers
George

Absolutely brilliant I'm also absolutely convinced it will happen some day, but could be open to abuse as you say. Farts can be dangerously toxic as we all know and not just wood.

If I were ever to own one of these aroma boxes, I believe I would have presets imposed, essentially enforcing a "NO FARTS" policy.
