The aroma of wood

Walnut. It takes me back to my childhood. My Great Uncle was a carpenter and his house smelled of walnut.

I love it all.  I use red oak the most but I love the smells in the shop.  That includes all the finishes.  My wife thinks I'm nuts but I haven't run across a wood that I didn't even like.  I am sure there is one out there but so far - I'm good to go.

Always use the right tool for the job.

We need to clean house.

Southern yellow Pine

Olive wood

Never turned the above highlighted woods but would love to try it.

I can say Camphor is wonderful and Red Ceder, and Pine is also.  I did have a curly KOA but do not remember the smell on that one.  There is one other wood I turned that had a sweet smell but do not remember that one.

Anyone know what Pimmerson wood smells like??  I was thinking of buying a piece of that to turn as a bowl or box if I can find it.   How about Red Bud or Dog Wood??
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.
