    Beautiful

    Very colorful wood. The ones that I received varied from light brown to red brown to dark brown. They were all different, but every one was beautiful. No problems with drilling or working the wood. It was slightly softer than other stock that I have worked, so it takes a lighter touch with tools when close to desired diameter.
