thanks for all the responses.never thought pics of my wood could be so popular!
the pallet was for indian sandstone so i assume it is a native indian species,ive discovered by planing back another one of the skids (that still had bark on it) that surprisingly all of the pieces are from the same tree with all the colour variants
not sure what im doing with it now.
was thinking maybe a neck (would be my first)with the one skid that is solid heart wood but i think its too heavy (3kg/6.6lbs 2.5"x2.5"x33") plus its a nightmare to work with.
maybe just laminate some bits of the two colour sapwood together for a top
Something about the flecks make me think it's some kind of Eucalypt which is really common for asian pallets. I'm a pallet hunter too and have found some surprising woods in the pallets from asia or south america. I once found a clean piece of bloodwood with sapwood on once side.
