the REST of the pictures on this page will give you a better overall feel for this wood
makore / Tieghemella heckelii and Tieghemella africana
I have no flat cut makore and I've never even SEEN cathedral grain in it except around knots, thus the rift cut piece to the left, instead of flat cut
3" x 3" rift cut, 4" x 4" quartersawn, 1" wide end grain, and a 1/4" x 1/4" end grain closeup.
Diffuse porous with medium pores generally in radial strands, frequent radial multiples up to 4 pores long, obvious vasicentric parenchyma, frequent banded parenchyma, growth ring boundaries are indistinct, rays present but are often hard to see even at 10X but they can produce obvious (but skinny) ray flakes on quartersawn surfaces.
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting ("soft white" at 2700K)
colors will vary under other lighting conditions
