I searched the archives and found nothing on this topic. I have sawdust
from several trees. My mission is to process, stain and examine these
specimens and try to identify the types of wood each came from. Has anyone
ever performed histology on sawdust? Can I simply embed the chips in
paraffin and section them or should they be routinely processed? Is the
traditional H&E the correct stain to use to differentiate the woods?
Any comments and suggestions are welcomed unless you plan on invoicing me!
