I've tried to use the macro feature on the camera in the past can't seem to get it to work.If it helps I'll try and take a close up I've had this Ash for a good year or so I machined it today. It did have a few holes in it from departed worm, there is one more pinhead hole so three in total.Yojevol":374iqf1y said:I'm afraid I can't see anything in this pic. Is the piece newly planed or has it been hanging around for a bit? Are they numerous
They are tiny little holes about the size of a pin prick. I also have some lime, after machining I saw these small round black marks not holes.Trevanion":39cx1u0y said:Are they holes?
If yes it's more than likely a hole from a staple holding a tag from when it was shipped, you tend to get them all the time with the big timber suppliers and occasionally you end up with a staple going through the thicknesser
If they're not holes, It's more likely to be some form of mineral that grew into the tree, like you get calcium deposits in Iroko.
Ah ok, out of curiosity if one wanted to, how could one cover them up, blend them in? I don't recall seeing them before I machined the timber, so could they be hidden in any timber, then appear after machining?custard":e0ey1erg said:On the Lime they look like pin knots, the traces of where a twig once grew.
