Huesito (Macrohasseltia macroterantha) its a white-cream color, very strong and hard wood that grows in the north coast of Honduras, and some other central american countries.
its quite termite resistent, its very bitter, and we call it Huesito literally “little bone” as its quiete hard to work with
sorry i did not clarified that.

Very nice dragonfly!

Those coaster sets are really cool with that small image of the dragon fly on top of them.
