It’s gorgeous. What do you mean the wood is roasted?

Thanks guys, I believe the wood is roasted in an oven after it is dried in the kiln to get a little more moisture out and turn it that beautiful color. It’s a little harder to work with. I have a helical head in my planer and had to take very light passes otherwise it would tear out pretty bad.
