The revelation was when it rained and the sapwood became so much more interesting... simulating what it will look like with a finish. This is not our usual euc. species (grandis). It has an intense pink-orange color when first cut which will return with a finish applied. The crotch grain is a lot like walnut - except it's in color! I have so much of this that I'd like to sell some at a great price. Some of it has dried nice and flat, but others have let it be known they would like to become benches - with the curves to meet your rear end already built in. Let me know if that sounds like a good project and we'll negotiate some really good prices.
A great use for wet wood is chair seats. As the wood dries around the tenon, the fit gets tighter. Send us pictures of what you make.
