Seems you all post when you find a good bit of stick.
I bought a stack of New Guinea Rosewood, and when I dressed a bit of it this is what I found.

I seem to spend as much time checking out whats in the back ground as I do the subject of the pics. That is some interesting grain I hope there are alot of the boards that way.

Some great looking timber. I guess it has the rosewood smell when worked.
