Wood Species Guide
I came across an article discussing the use of a wood called “frake” in a ship’s interior. Where does this wood come from, and where can I get some to work with?
I had ripped exotic species, including purpleheart, bloodwood, padauk, and teak, and some had an oily residue seeping out. Will this affect glue joints? Are these woods safe choices for use with food?
