I don't believe that's a solid piece of wood, but just wood fibers in some sort of resin base.

What about hemp, rice, banana pulp (Fostex), and other fibres paper are made of? Wood pulp paper is an artifact of the US making hemp of all kinds illegal (primamrily so that Dupont could make a profit on Nylon)
