Excellent wood
Review by  webekeit from ID
I bought this wood to build a night stand. I asked Woodworkers Source to select pieces with a lot of black streaking and they did just that for me. The wood is just beautiful. It cut easily and smoothly for me. It took stain nicely (I used a conditioner to fill the pores first) and I ended up with a very nice night stand.
