This order was a standard
this was very good quality lumber. The order after this one was not good. I rely on the board being flat when i get it because 13/16 is my drop dead thickness I can use. Jointing the board would render it to thin. The board I got today had very significant twist. I will continue to buy this, but im gonna need flatter. I know it cant be perfect but get me to the ball park.

great wood
Some what dissapointed in the actual color verses the picture of this wood, however, great to work with and takes a high natural polish
Familiarity: I've used it in several projects

Always a satisfying experience
I have never used this species before (Goncola Alves) and decided to try it. Your info on the wood characteristics was certainly correct, it was heavy and hard. One thing to add, wear gloves when handling. The edges give up sprinters easily and are painful due to hardness of the wood. Your team sent a beautiful selection of wide boards that I will put to good use on my next project. Just a magnificent looking wood, almost doesn't need finishing, but where is the fun in that?
