I doubt you need any form of begging or persuading from me to understand that one moment spent looking at a perfect board of rosewood will put your personal woodworking goals into a tailspin.
Oh right, you thought you were going to build that cabinet out of hard maple? Hickory?
Just one moment with a stack of rosewood lumber and the voices inside your head go something like this: Well, maybe I can make my own pulls out of rosewood. Wait, no! Raised panel doors. Yes rosewood panels. I’d better just buy this board right here at least. And that one there. Oh, and that one too. We’ll just eat peanut butter sandwiches for a week.
