Hi folks,
I've been given some random bits and one of them is puzzling. I thought it was laurel, but would appreciate your thoughts. Doesn't really matter- just nice to know before I spend hours turning it into shavings and interesting firewood!

Thanks in advance

That's a hard one! It's hard to say what it is without a planed face because the saw marks distort what the timber actually looks like. The bark is also a bit of an odd one. Do you have any photos of the end grain?

I don't think it's actually a hardwood, is it really a really fragrant timber? Kind of looks like Cedar of Lebanon up close.

You add additional images in the same way you added the first.
