Ah...Alion22...I got confused after.....So.....in your post.
I need coffee...
love that brain!
Thanks JK. I would love to get a mala done with nice quality wood. That's something I have in my mind but not right now.
Just wanted to get an idea, what kind of numbers are we talking about here.
The good thing is, now I know whom to contact once I make up my mind.
@Alion22 Thank you, that was helpful. That makes sense.
Let's talk specifics when ya get there and on the specific piece you're looking at - will be more accurate in that case discussing the specific piece in question.
Yeah - the general rule of thumb is that 4-5 g of wood is needed for every g of bead - per @Alion22 's more specific calculation above (thanks for that, btw!). It's in part what makes beads more expensive than their equivalent in wood simply for heating where there is no waste.
We've made several custom bangles for folks over the years - it's always an interesting undertaking! These pieces would all make some really gorgeous beads.
Ketapang Forest - (South) West Kalimantan
Species : Microcarpa - extra floral smelling
This is a two-tree haul of some monster pieces - one of which is over 300g All fast sinking.
Some of these pieces are solid all the way threw. A few have some insect burrows in them - they are mostly solid and have a few hollow dens in them, albeit with very thick walls.
When I take them outside - the floral notes kick up big time.
