Dave, if you rub the saw dust/timber, does it have a waxy feel. Beech is heavier than Cedar and does have a distinct smell. Like Brad says, it looks like white beech, try carving some, it is not as soft as Jelutong but still good to carve. Hope this helps.
Cheers,

Gavin

Dave I have been using Beech and Red C and look on both as floaters. My next little test run is to make a suspending lure with the smallest bib possible so I am looking for something heavier again.
