This has been air dried about 6 years so 99% of the movement in the wood is done. I am listing this for turning stock for handles but can be used for many things where a hard, durable wood is needed. I do not know the exact latin for this species. Harvested in Stratford NY 13470 in the Adirondack park. Approximate dimensions are 3"+ X 4"+ X 49"+. Wood is heavy and dense. Shipping weight about 20 lbs. I think I may have another piece or two here at the mill.
