Thumbs up Mr. Anonymous Game #44 @ 17/08/2017

Well, I have another game for you all, new and old...!

Some time ago, I cut and processed some slabs from a tree species that are relative to one other tree species that is very typical to South Australia but this one has been identified as having its own gene and therefore was given a different name to the more common one.

These are quite rare, dense and heavy wood.

Attached you will see pics of one of the logs I slabbed still in progress with some close-up images for better viewing.

I suppose, the obvious question is;

What is the common name this tree species was given..?

I would like to remind you all of the new conditions I introduced in game #32 and that is what actually the gift voucher amount will be spent on, and allow the actual winners to make their own choices. The only RULE that I ask you all to respect is that I allow each 1/3 of the value amount (AU$100.00) to be used for the selection of blanks/packs between the 3 main blanks types I make/sell, there is, raw/natural wood blanks, stabilized blanks/packs and Resifills (cast blanks), this means basically that you can select 1/3 of each type or all raw/natural blanks but never the voucher amount of all stabilized or Resifill blanks, I hope this has come clear if not, let me know...!

A voucher code will be sent by PM or email to the winner that will use it to put his/her's order, any freight/shipping is not included in the prize/voucher so, you will be requested at checkout to pay for posting.

Good luck...!

Cheers
George

I think the tree you speak of is a Jarrah tree, which is a member of the Myrtle family.
Eucalyptus marginata

Sorry but that would be incorrect...!

You may not be very familiar with Jarrah but, the wood is very dark brown while this one is more redish...!

Try again.

Cheers
