Morado Wood 4/4
Review by  Hal from GA
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.

Review by  Howdy 185 from Westwego
Was very impressed with the 10 pack but only received 9 board but did have 10 board feet in the pack. The wood in the pack was outstanding just have to figure out what to build.

Vesey nice to work with
Review by  Mr B. from Fort Mohave
This Morado is beautiful when finished with oil and works very well with hand and power tools. The only issue I had was some small holes in almost every piece that looked like nail holes. Didn't look like knots or naturally occuring. Anyway just had to fill them with black and they look fine. I will probably order more soon.
