Pau Rosa Turning Billets
As you can see there is quit a variance in grain and figure in these billets. Very few have sap wood as pictured in the lower billet. These 2x2's are very dense and remind me a lot of Cocobolo.
This picture I grabbed a random block out of the stack. I planned it, sanded with 100 grit belt , Beall Buffed with Tripoli and White Diamond buffing compounds, and finished with Carnauba Wax.
