Surely it's not "Californian" Redwood if it was grown in Tasmania? Plus who'd want a 110-year-old slab for 12.5k?! I'd want a 2000-year-old genuine Sequoia slab for that much :lol: .Osvaldd":nndbg00l said:looks like this stuff here

It isn't so much the mixing of species, but like choosing clothes the species need to work with each other. With clothes it is colour and style. With wood it tends to be colour and grain/texture. You can try to match colours or have contrasting colour- both work, but if you have a fine grain and a course grain it is like wearing a suit and shorts. Yep, some people do but it looks odd to most bystanders.Osvaldd":2gm9ygt2 said:I need some thick stock to make legs for this table top that I made from oak floorboards.
would this red-pine be alright? Or is mixing species is a big no no. ?
