Leopard wood characteristics
Review by  GlenWoody from Washington
I would make sure to learn about the Grain in this wood because the direction you cut makes all the difference I look at this wood under a magnifying glass .It has strange Orange Lines running through it and you get the best effect if you cross cut through the grain you get in Long gated lines. Sanding was interesting you have to really pay attention what direction you sand
