U won't be able to use them as u'll find the densyties, cause the wood differes from a lott to another. U'd better try cutting a cubic piece of the block u r making the bait from with 1cm or 1inch sides. And now u have the volume(in cm or inches). The only thing left is to weigh it. and there u have it...

I didn't use the method yet, cause the usuall wood i'm using has a density that differs on a piece of 1m block. If u don;t know how to weight it, u should try a drug store near by. Or a jewelery shop.....

Hopefully i've been of some help

Drewski,

I have attached an Excel file that I created a while back with densities of various materials, including some wood species. Remember that any material with a Specific Gravity of 1.00 or higher will sink, as water is the reference at 1.00.
