It really looks a bit like a Pine. Second guess.

Complete answer for that one will be Radiata Pine thinking the black may be end-on of the blackish (resin?) streaks that appear as well as the apparent growth rings spacing.

Third and final attempt will be Norfolk Pine based on the comments about history and limited availability in Australia. It was only introduced in the 50's, evidently.

I'm with you Mike, I sanded the end grain of a 2x4 in the shop last night, the appearance was strikingly similar. I think the black dots are resin ducts (or resin canals), only present in conifers: Softwood Anatomy | The Wood Database . From what I can tell, George only has two conifers on the list, Radiata and Norfolk, but since Radiata is #13 and Norfolk is #58, I went with Radiata based on the other clues. I think I might go looking for a nice piece of construction lumber to cross-cut into pen blanks...

Whoops, didn't see Knotty pine -- a third possibility...

Default Pine character

Hey, Sam -Not wanting to hijack the game thread, but a few months ago when I bought my first lathe and wanted to see if it would grab the gouge and beat me with it, I grabber some 2x2 bracing off a lawn mower pallet I save pieces from. The mower was made in Poland, the 2x2 is some sort of pine and the character was amazing as I turned it into a spindle and sanded with what I had at the time. It had a couple of small tight knots, a section of "dots" from the sapwood/bark area of it being small and sanded nicely. As George said, a wood we normally avoid but it has some character.
