I cannot verify the pictures I previously posted are Turkish boxwood or even boxwood for that matter. I do know I have the only pieces my supplier had.
What I am sure of is the Pau Marfim(Balfourodendron riedelianum) I mentioned, also known by these names: Farinha-seca, Gramixinga, Guataia, Guatambu blanco / moroti, Ibira-nete, Ibiranoti, Ivorywood, Marfim, Moroti, Pao liso, Pao marfim, Pau liso, Pequia marfim, Quatamba.
Characteristics: The wood is whitish-yellow to lemon coloured, with little distinction between sapwood and heartwood. The texture is very fine and uniform, the grain straight or irregular, occasionally interlocked, and the wood has a medium luster. It weighs about 800 Kg / m3 when dried.
The source is South America - Brazil, Paraguay, & Argentina. This was labeled when it came in with the name Pequia marfim.
The pack is labeled 4/4,5/4,6/4. It is mostly 6/4 and maybe some 7/4. The rough price is $5.00 BdFt. This is my suppliers price and you can contact him direct if you like. I would be willing to send samples for serious inquiries from SAPFM members. I would slice off some 1/8" pieces at least 2" wide and about 8" long so I could use a regular envelope.
The attached pictures are not true in color, the background is on a white sheet of paper(90 brightness). The last one seems the truest color on my monitor.
