the REST of the pictures on this page will give you a better overall feel for this wood
bocote / Cordia spp.
5" x 5" flat cut, 5" x 5" quartersawn, 3/4" wide end grain, and a 1/4" x 1/4" end grain closeup.
Diffuse porous with with moderate pore size noticible rays. The growth ring boundaries are much more pronounced in these end grain shots than is normal. The wild swirly grain in the flat cut face is fairly common.
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting --- colors will vary under other lighting conditions
