Beautiful looking wood, needs to be used!

Really on the trail of this now. Everything is pointing to a member of the Anarardiacaea family.

Eliminating tropical and evergreen species I think it's Toxicodendron vernix from North America, known as Poison Sumac or Thunderwood. Opinions welcome.

 

Whereabouts are you in the country Shillo?

No i don't think it is Toxicodendron vernix. There was one of those on site and as i suggested in an earlier post the farmer  who cut it up ended up in A&E. He assured me it was a different tree. the leaves were more radially arranged and a black resinous, Creasote like liquid was very evident under the bark, which caused all the blisters on the farmer.

 Do you remember going to a disco, and everything white glowed in the dark, 🤫 including white bras under thin tops 👍 

i dunno what nm wavelength it is, but there are a few and they all have different uses.😉
