Want to know.  I don't think you get the third one.

Actually I went through MY dice collection and I think I have the answers.

Tambootie and Timborana?

Tambootie is correct.  You were closer with olivewood on the other.

Let me know when you want the name of the 3rd one.  Here are some more.  2 should be easy for you...

No and no, though you are close on the olivewood guess.  The left die is "brighter" in real life if that helps.  And it has a fun name to say, not that Chacate Preto isn't fun to say.

I do love those Olivewood dice offered in their kickstarter.  Wish I would have picked some up but only allowed myself one d6 set and so I went with something that was different in my collection.

I rolled with Bloodwood :)

Solid choice.  I love my dark bloodwood dice.

I thought you were going to throw the Gaboon up there when I saw the comment that 2 should be easy.

Actually the one that I think you DIDN'T think I'd get is Red Palm?

And part of the problem is that I mix up some of these with my own dice - but I'm pretty sure the upper right is Yucatan Rosewood?

Yucatan Rosewood (bottom) and Red Palm are correct.

Bloodwood is definitely very pretty.

Okay...Okay...I know I have been quite today. Here's some old pics back from before most of us knew each other. They may be too easy but let's see what you got.

The bottom one is Chechen.  The top one looks like boob maple.  The middle is curly something.  Birch maybe?  It's very pretty.

It sounded nicer than sitting on the copier without pants on.  How is that last one not Chechen.  I'm intrigued now.

*rubs eyes* "boob maple"?  @Konas I don't recall BooMa being involved in any selection.  Have I forgotten something?  

Middle guess:  Waterfall bubinga?

The first one is really tough. I cut it off a dead tree, mill and dried it myself, then built it. A true 'one off' in a wood we have only ever used once. The last two are woods we currently use often.

Maybe the bottom one is canarywood???  If it is, that's the best canarywood I've seen.

It IS the best Canarywood you have ever seen. Nicely done.
