Default Puzzle Contest #3

Puzzle #3 is now open for your enjoyment (or frustration).

This one is a Wood Identification Contest. There are 8 pen blanks in the attached photo and I'm going to tell you what they are (in alphabetical order). Your task is to put these woods in order by blank number.

1. Send your list of the woods to iap.puzzles@gmail.com. Be sure to put Puzzle #3 in the Subject line of your message so I can keep track of which contest your entry is for
3. You will earn two points if you get all 8 correct or one point if you get at least 5 correct.
4. Everyone who gets at least 5 correct will be entered into the random draw for this individual puzzle.
5. This puzzle will close at noot CST on Monday, Feb 12.

Be sure to include your real name and user name in your message.

Banter is encouraged, but please do not post any real hints. Everyone needs to figure out the puzzles on their own.

Have fun and let me know if you have any questions.
Edgar

Here are the 8 types of wood:

Alaskan Yellow Cedar
Alder
Camphor
Holly
Kou
Oak
Ramone
Wood Apple

Note about the photo in this puzzle.

The photo was shot under fluorescent light with an iPhone. I cropped and resized the photo, but I did not apply any adjustments (brightness, color, contrast, etc) to the image itself.

Can you post a scratch-n-sniff photo. It would help if I could smell it.

Be careful with what you might get from that request . Not all of his pens have been made from wood .

I think it would be easier if he dyed them all black and took the photo at midnight under a new moon without any other illumination.

I was thinking Hills Weeping Fig, but you could very well be right.
