For all you carvers out there, here is the most Thorough Wood description Website I have ever seen. Excellent pictures of multiple slices and super descriptions down to smell and taste.http://www.hobbithouseinc.com/personal/woodpics/#letterA
That was the Mini Web page.
Here is the Full web page

Hope you like it.
Not sure if this is the right place to post this, if not we can move it.

Thanks Ben! Have not seen this one before. That's a very useful site right now for me because I'm trying to identify some new woods.

Very nice. I can't believe how gorgeous those woods are! Here is a website I stumbled on a while back. Maybe we can all pitch in and buy our own tree!
