here is a coffee table i made for my friend It is made from Brazilian Cherry or JOBOTO i guess is the other name It is a hard wood It is 2.3 time harder or denser than oak May be off on the dens. It sure did work up nice I use M.L. CAMPBELL cabnet grade lacquer And it sure is heavy I made the legs from 4 pieces glued up and than fluted on each side He didn't want any turned leg's he was the boss thank's for looking del

Very nice, Del.

What is it about the South American woods? I've made several things with purpleheart (also Brazilian), and the stuff is really dense. I made a small plant stand, and almost split a gut hauling it out of the shop!

Very NICE, Del!

I have some Jatoba too... real heavy stuff... did you have any trouble milling the wood? ... beads n all the fine cuts?

Aren't they pretty heavy?

Should last a life-time!

Thank you for sharing...

Very nice work, I never had the opportunity to work with wood from South America. Sounds interesting, I'll have to give it a try
