If I had to put a name to the wood I worked with I would go with Basswood or perhaps a Eucaplytus species that was cleverly dyed. But I will never know for certain and the old adage remains as true today as ever: If it sounds too good to true it probably is. A naturally occurring through and through blue wood just sounds too good to be true. So, shame on me for falling for it in my wood turning youth.
The seller was listed as “stevesstuff66”. I cannot recommend purchasing ANYTHING from this seller, although predictably there is no longer any such seller listed on eBay.
As always, I wish all my readers a great experience in whatever their wood working interests happen to be and to those who like working with lathes especially, do a good turn today!
