I know you guys get mad about that stuff. Now today my wife came with a huge gift: genuine old - probably 35 to 40 yrs old BRAZILLIAN ...but see here

It appeared from a long forgotten drawer in the attic from her mother. Guess it'll make for some nice rosewood bridges, TRC, etc.

Isn't the top on a hairbrush or mirror? Well, now that I think of it, those can be sex toys... And I think that Palisander was used as a name for BRW (though perhaps it was used for other rosewoods as well.) Nice pieces. Surely nice and stable by now!

Yep, two fine hairbrushes. And the denomination Rio gives it away as - hoooray - BRW. :applause:
Reading, my friend, sometimes helps. :yesway:
On my way to mthe workshop, carving bridges...
