Vic my dad used to work in the timber trade. He was able to tell where a piece of wood came from, or what it was, by smell.
He used to win wagers at work.

HOW ABOUT a piece of Scented Rosewood, open air dried for 20-30 years in a paddock out the back of Mullumbimby, legally obtained and sitting under the back of a relatives house for the past two decades ???

A woodturner's dream..
