This Louro Preto is a unique and one of a kind species that originated from a cluster burl tree in Costa Rica that we salvaged. It had been dead standing for 20+ years. The majority of the sapwood has been naturally isolated and there are mineral streaks in the lumber. Some checks, cracks and live edges are present in some pieces and the burls all have checks and incursions. This is a great opportunity to own an uncommon hardwood! This has been surface sanded on two sides with surface skip on front face. There are rough edges on this piece. There are a few bug holes, bark incursions, checks in burl eyes, and has a soft sapwood edge that is mostly solid. If using a polyurethane finish or waterlox, it should harden. Must be able to work with the soft, live edge. The side with the double burl is pretty solid, the opposite side has some of the softer areas.
