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.

Coolest grain pattern I've ever seen
Makes cool guitar body tops. Good tone. Quite an oily wood that will polish smooth with a moderate natural gloss. A bit harsh on the cutting tools and can block up abrasives. Smells unpleasant when it's cut.
We used the wood in building a small table. It turned out very well.
