A dragon blood tree? I only know this because we are godparents to a violinist's children, and "Dragon's blood" (sap/resin from the tree) was used as a source of varnish for 18th-century Italian violin-makers, the type of violin she uses. I thought she was joking until she showed me a similar picture.

A totally lucky guess. If she played the piano I would not have had a clue.

I see Marc already provided the answer and if I recall correctly, the same type of tree was used as a Whatzit example several years ago.

Congratulations Marc, and that was an interesting bit of information about the tree being used as a source of varnish for 18th-century Italian violin-makers.

I guess it is similar to the Tung tree and it's Tung Oil that comes from China and is still used in many top quality varnishes, especially in marine use. Maybe even some musical Instruments.

I do believe it is one of the few oils that will penetrate and adhere to teak and African gumwood, both often used in the marine trade and furniture.
