I’m one of the Breaktime regulars who’s looking for a little help.
Someone gave me some wood about 10 years ago. He worked at a place that had made pallets in the past. And they had a lot of old rough sawn lumber in storage buildings. He had worked there about 15 years, and said the wood had been there as long as he’s been around. So I have no way to track the source of the wood.
Some of the guys have suggested it might be sycamore. That could be reasonable, as sycamore is a native tree around here. (central Illinois)
Someone suggested it could be lacewood, or silky oak. I’ve never heard of those, so I don’t think they’re native. As I understand it, lacewood is imported? If that’s true I doubt that’s correct. If they were making pallets with the stuff they probably bought the wood from a local sawmill.
Here are the pictures I posted at Breaktime. Thanks for any help you can offer.
If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the “terminal”?
