Default Re: Woods for Plug Making

I have a Wood type for you to add if that is possible. .

I have recently Purchased Red Balau to Make Adirondack Chairs with. I am going to laminate what I have left over for turning. The wood is Stronger than Teak and More durable than teak but 1/10th the cost. It is extremely heavy and dense I believe this wood would Make great sinking plugs or possibly darters. It has a Specific Gravity of .93 and weighs 53 pounds per cubic ft. It finishes unbeleivably but your tools will need sharpening often.
