    Not much like the image...

    This was the first piece of any wood I've ordered in which I was disappointed. The color was more like mahogany and it had almost no figure. I have a large chunk of Goncalo Alves I had bought at a local Woodcraft store which was very much like the color and figure in the images here, so I was expecting more.
