Got my box today bliss That Honduran rosewood is awesome. Just what I was hoping for. Most woods only ring if you hold in a few specific spots and tap, and just make a quick thunk otherwise. But this stuff finds some frequency to ring at nomatter where you hold it :D Only two other sets in my entire stash that do that... one is black Brazilian, one is another dark Honduran like this.

Thanks for all the offcuts and things too. I already found a use for the Honduran rosewood squares, cutting out little pre-shaped binding pieces for the crown of my harp guitar's headstock. I've managed to bend woods for it before, but I couldn't get anything to take the extremely tight curves this time, and especially not rosewood like I wanted, so I just gotta do it like an inlay.
