Ziricote (cordia dodecandra) is a very dense, very oily hardwood that is native to Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. Depending on how it is cut, it can show beautiful snakeskin like rays/flecks, or excellent landscaped patterns.

These scales were quartersawn from sapwood to show off the wonderful rays.  Ziricote is very hard, but care must be taken not to overheat the wood when grinding.

These were left natural, although future offerings will likely be stabilized.  The price has been reduced because of this.
