Three summers ago, we went to Jijel for holiday , and I had the chance to find some briar root pieces on the beach. At first sight they looked just like anything you can find on the beach. But the weight and hardness of it shows their nobleness.
Briar wood is a very hard wood to cut, but stands filing and carving very well.
It is generally used for smoking pipe making.
I'm very happy with the result and someone in the house is very happy that those horrible things found 3 years ago are no longer on the top shelf of our bookcase.
