The local lumberyard is closing out its laurel at half price; about $4/bf.
It is pretty wood that looks kinda like butternut, but heavier and harder.
I can't find much on it, but maybe it is myrtle; does that sound right?
One website says myrtle is $3/bf, but isn't dated. I can't find it anyplace
So, is laurel a good wood to work with, and is the price reasonable?
