Makore, also known as African cherry, is a moderately dense, high strength hardwood from Africa.  It boasts tight closed grain and maintains a lot of the figuring typically found only in the sapwood of domestic cherry throughout.  Because of this slightly interlocking grain, moderate movement can be noticed during the drying process.  We have eliminated most of these inconsistencies by planning this down the 13/16ths.  Color wise, it starts as a pale almost pinkish red that darkens over time to a deep golden brown with the slightest red tones.  It cuts glues and finishes well, but care should be taken when working Makore in a closed environment as sensitivities to its dust have been reported.

4/4 refers to lumber that was cut at 1 inch thickness 
15/16ths has been skip planed (a majority of the surfacing work has been done, there may be a few spots that are still rough, but the grain of the particular piece of wood should be visible)
13/16ths is commonly called finish planed.  This should be ready for sanding and finish
 Ripped 1 edge is lumber that has been run through a straight-line rip saw.  This allows for easy squaring on a table saw.
Sanded refers to a select few lumber options that have been run through a belt sander and are 100% finish ready.
