The wood is sande. Before you track someone down that sells it the wood is terrible to build with. It's bad to tear out when you try to joint or route it. Then if you work very much of it you will notice all your tools getting dull. It's very abrasive to cutting tools. I bought about 200' of it earlier this year and the wood had the best appearance of any wood I'd ever seen. Not only that the hardwood supplier had to transfer it 200 miles from another store and I was stunned when I got the bill and it was thirty seven cents a board foot. After working it I found out why.

Same here. I edited it to make the photo show and when I refreshed the page my computer hosed up. When I restarted my computer the image is gone. So now I'm not sure...

Very strange, photos show after a browser refresh for a few seconds and then disappear.

The same is true for me. I see the photos for a few moments, and then they are gone, in the Safari browser on macOS 10.12.6 Sierra.

I had a customer that wanted me to build a closet system across one wall in their bedroom and they picked out a laminate color from the Container Store for the finish. The finish was stained with white paint to where you could barely tell it was wood. That put me in a position of needing a wood with a grain like Lauan but didn't have the red color since I was finishing it white. I remembered the sande plywood that Home Depot sells so I started trying to find the sande solid wood.

Another tidbit. The wood comes from Ecuador and Colombia and more closely related to Mulberry wood than any of the mahogany woods.
