Great selection of Jobillo
Jobillo has a striking grain and great contrast in color but I needed matching pieces for my project and ended up having to buy 8 pieces to get 6 reasonably matched pieces. I will be making some vases and large (24") peppermills using matched 12" pieces of Jobillo with Ebony accents. An earlier vase is shown below.
