It is native to the Sichuan-Hubei region of China. Although shortest of the redwoods, it grows to at least 200 ft (61 m) in height
This Wood i got today should be a Metasequoia glyptostroboides,
seem to me that this tree has grown a lot in a hurry,
Back Home i was too curious have just a glance of what its hide inside...
First time i Turned so Wet Wood,
It's really cool.....
Sin while turning Tool rest move with the workpiece in motion
just a little bit touch it and the edge crushed.
i couldn't resist today to take some Elm Wood...
and pity for the "Robinia" or False Acacia...
because those cracks did not convince me at all..
