Ok so, I see some very interesting guesses and some that are a long way out.

The first clue I gave was when I said that I cut and processed these logs so it means that the wood would be one of my timbers list.

The second guess is when I say that this tree species and its relatives are rare but typical of South Australia so, it couldn't possibly be an exotic species that does not exist/grow in Australia

With that said, it should be a little easier to work out what it is, huh..?

As anyone got it right...? I don't know, you tell me...!

Cheers
George

G'day Martin,

I let you out on a secret, with these games, I always advise people to put their guess down even if someone else has already guessed it first, why...? because, I'm always interested in seeing how close each member get but more importantly, sometimes, I decide to give double prices and unless your guess is on, it won't count...!

PS: Each member can give 3 guesses, all in different posts.

Cheers
George

I think at least one does, but I've been wrong many times before and I'm pretty sure I will be again...
