    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Comments about Rosewood, Bolivian 1/8" x 3" x 24" :

    Wood grain and color were very nice. Wood was flat and dimensionally accurate. Looked great in use. However, 1 of 2 1/8" thick pieces was cracked through. For the price, someone should look at each piece more carefully. Complaint email was promptly addressed and a replacement piece was dispatched via snail mail.
