    I got a load of Lemon gum eucalyptus today. The scientific name suits him perfect, Citri dora= smell of citric A great smell around the grove of the trees.. Its 100% curly, a friend said its interlocking grain, to me its curly. I will try to add some pictures. Has anybody turn this? I made some blanks, I will turn some soon. I turned Robusta and it was good, dried ok... Nice dense, heavy wood, did I say super curly? lol I might even try to chase some threads when I have some dry blanks.... Ny info would be appreciated. Aloha
