      Yeah, I found it flat...

      But seriously, I tried a free sample (so small it wasn't worth the postage I paid) from My Chip Carving. I didn't particularly like it and wouldn't consider using it unless it was way cheaper. It just doesn't have that good wood feel to it, didn't find it satisfying I just didn't care for it...maybe if I carved a whole piece jn it I would come around, I just don't know. Too artificial for me, but the only way to find out is to try a piece for yourself.

        Thanks, guys, I was thinking about using some Tobasco sauce . I've sent for a sample. I was thinking of making a house number sign with a Bronco Logo for the front yard.

          Hi Joe
          I only tried a small sample, The thing I liked about was it carved with very little effort, good for older carvers like my self that don't have the strength to do large projects in wood, it is very pricey. If you live near a sign maker who uses it, you might pick up scrap pieces at a reasonable price. fishcarver.com seems to be doing his carvings in HDU

            Yup I carved it. Tried Sign board too. Didn't like either one. Precision board was like carving foam and sign board was like carving pressed card board. So back to pine I went.

                I guess this shows that the experience of woodcarving has a tactile feedback that is essential to complete enjoyment.

                  Pretty soon, it will be all that's left.

                    I talked with the company who manufactures the product this afternoon. The material is manufactured in densities of 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 30, 34, 40, 48, 60, 70, & 75 #/cuft.
                    They are sending samples of the 12, 15 & 20. for me to evaluate. Another great thing is there is an outlet right here in Sparks.

                    As soon as I get my samples, I'll sample them and let you know what I think

                      Just to put that density in perspective...
                      Basswood 26 lb/ft3
                      Rock Maple 44 lb/ft3
                      Mesquite 51 lb/ft3
                      Osage Orange 54 lb/ft3
                      Water 62.4 lb/ft3

                      Anything with a density greater than 62.4 lb/ft3 will not float.

                        Thanks for jogging the memory, Claude. the rep. that I was talking to was thinking more of the 12 #, but I'm thinking of in the 25-30# Just have to wait for the samples. Again thanks for the jog.

                          Thanks for floating that by us Claude. Good info on wood densities to retain.
