Louro Preto

This was cut from a dead standing tree that has dried slowly for at least 20 years in Costa Rica!  The wood contains only a small amount of residual moisture.  As you know it is very difficult to get dry exotics that are as thick as what we are offering!  Burl caps and cuts have some areas of soft spalting and small voids. The caps are ideal for turning or using for clocks, or other display pieces.  Outside cuts with live edges will have some checks or splits.  There is one slab that would be ideal for a headboard for a one of a kind bed. Most blanks are wax sealed or end sealed.

Quarter to rift sawn at the wide end. Instrument Grade. Slowly dried over 20 years as a dead standing tree in Costa Rica.
