Beautiful Wood
This is the 3rd order of this wood that I have made and each is beautiful. The color and grain result in a gorgeous product. Goes through the table saw, planer and joiner crisply with no noticeable tear out. Easy to work and yields a wonderful product, what more can you ask for?

Very short, shorts.
This wood is one of my favorites. I bought this short pack without reading the details. You're going to have issues making anything with the size included in this pack. I would recommend purchasing the “normal" length, that way you'll be able to make furniture and won't waste your money on shorts.

Morado 4/4 Shorts
The Morado 4/4 Shorts were advertised on the Woodworkerssource website with a special price offer. Since I have experienced great results with my previous 6 piece Genuine Mahogany order, I immediately responded to get the Morado Shorts. The Morado order arrived in great shape and was obviously quality material.

This wood is so pretty when finished with oil! It works well with power and hand tools and is definitely one of my favorites now.

Astonishingly beautiful
Quickly received my order, which was very well packaged. By my calculations, even after factoring in the one board with about 4" of deep checking that won't be usable, I still received nearly 6% more usable linear length than what was committed. Super impressed.

Morado Wood 4/4
This was my second order of Morado and the wood is as beautiful as the first order. color ranges from deep brown to a lighter brown with remarkable parts of sapwood that have a clear delineation from the heartwood so there are pieces of light color, almost like maple that seem to highlight the darker colors. And the grain provides a texture that is striking. The wood needs planing so will be 3/4" when completed but I found that to me perfect for my projects.
