I dont understand how beech and oak are listed as the lowest weight per cubic metre and softwood the highest, i'd expect the opposite, wondering if some of the figures are mixed up. Interesting thread though.

and any wood above 1000kg per 1m3 would sink in water :001_rolleyes:

 

Hhhm yeah thats a thought:001_smile:

 

You sure that list is right because it looks like beech has a lower moisture content than ash.
