    Ok I know the last project is not done yet, but I have several pieces of this wood.[​IMG]

    I am using it for camp fires, but now that the sling shot bug has bitten me I was wondering if it would be any good for a wood SS project.

    As you can see it looks pretty good when its cleaned up and it is a very hard wood I am guessing walnut, anyone have an opinion on this one?

    The photo of the wood cleaned up isn't too clear, a close-up would be better. From here, it appears to be either Oak or Walnut.

    It does look like oak from a pallet or something like that. Pretty strong stuff if it is.

    I agree with it being oak, remember when you work with the wood for the grain to go vertically( unless your laminating u would need to cross grain then)

    I found the other end of the board that was cut off, as you can see this end had several cracks in it. The other end used for the boat was flawless. I like the look of the wood do you think it could be used for a Moorhammer or a rambone with some pretty heavy bands? The wood is very hard and dense but when I split it with an ax it explodes apart.

    You sir are a sick minded person, just the reaction I was looking for with the title.

    It was used on a load of metal we got to keep it spaced apart so the fork lift could lift it.

    Use a core, multiplex/alu, to keep it safe for strong bands.
