Makore hope chest your way.

Makore (African Cherry)
From African gold coast, Nigeria. This wood comes redder than mahogany and is much less prone to turn dark. On a recent large project involving several cabinetmakers, all experienced mild allergic reactions while sanding, so it is very important to have good dust control and ware a good dust mask. Once sanded and finished we have no problem with this lovely wood. Color is light pink to deep red.  The pattern is similar to Mahogany but has dark growth lines and small pores similar to cherry. It is straight grained with stripes.  Makore has a finer texture than most Mahoganies.
