New Guinea Rosewood. Top for a bathroom vanity,, prior to cutting the hole for the sink.
It is nearly 4’ long. 18” wide and 1 1/2” thick. I used #20 biscuits to join the boards and titebond II.
I just love the grains and color of the NGR.
This was for a neighbors’ father and he will install and finish ,, hope to get a pic of the final install.

That is beautiful wood Larry. You really live in the right place for getting what seems like a huge variety of different high quality woods. Hope we see the finished installation.

Nice looking top. I hope that’s not for an undermount sink though – those biscuits love to come back to haunt you. DAMHIKT.

That is some really nice lumber, Larry. We don’t have anything over here that looks quite like it.
