Imbuia, native to Brazil, is a beautiful species that has rich colors ranging from green, yellow, and tan to dark brown. A spicy aromatic smell is present when the wood is milled. Imbuia works well and takes a nice finish. Occasionally there are logs with good figure such as the log in this special. This batch of Imbuia wood is dry and ready to use. It was milled 8 years ago and has been equilibrium air dried (which is quite substantial since this wood is difficult to dry)! Blanks are surfaced on two or more sides; squares are generally surfaced on four sides. This is very rich, dark Imbuia with nice colors, contrast, and unique patterns! Please note that this wood cannot ship outside of the USA.
One back piece has a taper on the corner edge right behind the numbers. This thinner spot falls outside the pattern. There are two incursion that will need to be worked around. All pieces are quarter sawn. The back pieces have a 1/8" cup that will lay flat with minimal pressure.
