Default Wood identifier

I came across this site while surfing the web and thought it might be useful to some of our members. The list is not complete, but then again, I don't think that's even possible.

I see Zebrawood on the list, but not Leopard wood. Thinking about using some Leopard wood on a future project. It's a great looking species.

Hello Chad,
I found a site for some great pictures of Leppard wood take a look.

You learn by doing, so I've learned. It's only a suggestion, It's not law.

If I said something let me know, good or bad.

Wow, that looks like something I could contribute to (with a combined interest in wood and photography!).

I don't think the pictures are quite as good, but the Crosscut Hardwoods web site has a decent list here. They have a good description and list the hardness of each species, too.

Default identify wood

Surprisingly, freshly machined wood includes a very identifiable, (and with respect to the genus, usually reliable) scent. Whenever your eyes and hands can’t quite obtain a definitive answer, sometimes onto your nose can. Presuming there's no stain, finish, or preservative on or perhaps in the wood, rapidly sand, saw, or else machine a portion of the wood under consideration, and have a whiff from the aroma
