KOTO

Pterygota spp. of the family: Sterculiaceae, the cacao family



my samples:


veneer

web pics:


planks


plank listed as koto / Pterygota spp.


plank with prominent ray flakes


quartersawn plank


planks listed as koto / Pterygota macrocarpa


plank listed as "lacy" koto --- I have not otherwise seen that designation and I don't see the wood as being "lacy" in any significant way although the pic is so poor it's hard to tell


veneer


veneer listed as koto / Pterygota bequaertii


steamed veneer listed as anatolia / Pterygota bequaertii


veneer listed as pterygota / Pterygota macrocarpa ("pterygota" is one of the common names for the species, even though it is a genus and so applies to a LOT of woods


listed as quartersawn veneer although the 2nd one does not look quartersawn to me


listed as koto veneer but I'm not familiar with a ribbon stripe variety, so find this suspect. This looks exactly like several other ribbon stripe woods (such as sapele and/or chen) with the color misrepresented


listed as steamed veneer


listed as unsteamed veneer
