Help IDing random boards from old cabinet shop
« on: April 08, 2018, 07:32:05 AM »
Hi all,

New to the forum and I picked up a bunch of smaller boards from an old cabinet shop here in Boston. I am not great a identifying boards especially anything exotic. Any assistance would be appreciated.  Hoping I posted the pics correctly. There are 4 different boards.

My guess is ebony but not much experience with it, a few pieces 30+ years ago.

I had though some type of ebony for the last board too. The first one I think is some type of rosewood. The middle boards I have no clue. Thanks.

My opinion, 1st one is wenge, 2nd one is maybe rosewood but least confident with that id, 3rd I think is zircote, 4th ebony.
