Several new experiments with the press !

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heavy_Press_Program I was able to reach 3 000 kg pressure / cm2 and got past 2000 kg/m3 density on the wood composite. Stuff is hard as steel..possibly harder since it is close to carbon fibre which is 5 times tougher than steel. I recall Howard Hughes claimed 80% tougher than aluminium for the urea folmaldehyde glue based Duramold wood composite.

Cool eh ?
