Wood Samples for education
« on: July 11, 2013, 10:09:43 AM »
I ocassionally saw at the Shelburne Farms Harvest Festival.  They are a 501c-3 organization and stress education.  I have some wood samples that I place on a table with a number on each piece and an answer key so people know what each is, and would appreciate more samples especially of southern and western woods that I could add to the collection.  I am planning on attending the roast so if you care to bring a sample I would appreciate it.  The problem I have is I only need one piece of each species how would one go about rectifying this issue?
The following is a list of what I currently have in my sample box:
BEECH
BASSWOOD
MAPLE SAPWOOD
MAPLE MOSTLY HEARTWOOD
MAPLE SPALTED
SHAG BARK HICKORY
BITTERNUT HICKORY
GRAY BIRCH
HARDHACK
CEDAR NATIVE WHITE
CHERRY
BUTTERNUT
ELM
WALNUT
QUARTER SAWN WHITE OAK
ASH
RED OAK
CURLY RED MAPLE
BLACK BIRCH
MONTMORENCY CHERRY
MAHOGANY
JUNIPER
BLACK LOCUST
BUCK THORN
ASH
RED PINE
WHITE PINE
HEMLOCK
AMBROSIA MAPLE
BLACK OAK
YELLOW BIRCH
POPLAR
BOX ELDER
RUSSIAN MULBERRY
SPRUCE
COLORADO BLUE SPRUCE
HONEY LOCUST

Preferred size of the samples would be 3/4" thick min, x 6" preferrably 8" wide x 18 to 24" long.  Thanks in advance.  See you at the roast.  Gerald
