Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
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.

I turn segmented bowls. This saline bloodwood was recommended as a red wood that holds its color. I will use it as a decorative pattern in bowls.
Not what I was expecting
I was disappointed when I opened up the packaging and saw this wood. It is a nice looking wood with a rich deep reddish/purplish colour but it was twisted and warped beyond use in the intended project but I can still use it in other small projects and as trims and bindings on my guitars I build. Well, hey, it is a wood and woods warp every now and again. It's a luck of the draw really, and being subjected to pressure changes on the airplane during transit may have warped it.
