I have an opportunity to purchase a large amount of air dried Kentucky coffee wood. I cant find any good or bad on this wood when used for end grain cutting boards. Seems to be a very hard wood and kinda resembles white oak. Any ideas ?? thanks

the Wood Data Base says it is quite porous.
which to me, would make a poor candidate for end grain boards.
Common Uses: Furniture, cabinetry, fence posts, and utility wood.
