Andy,
I have a nice piece but I have to find it. If memory serves it’s 6-8 wide and maybe 18” in length and 2” thick. If you can bare with me I will look for it but going out of town for the 4th and maybe a little extra. Jim

These are about 20y air dried. I've used about a dozen over the years - they will be a marbled magenta when cut, then fade to black over about six months. I have worked with other bois de rose that is a hotter pink and fades slower. So if you are looking for tone wood, good fit. For color, probably not.

I am kinda looking for color and a wider piece but I'm also kinda obsessed with this stuff whats your asking price on this or these I still might be interested. Still trying to find something else for your pink ivory haha!!
