    I like the 2 tone amboyna so I cut several that way.
    I just started sanding them. Here they are at 36 grit. They will get darker and redder when I sand them finer.

    I guess this means I should clean up the amboyna first.
    Some are cut for a large WA, others might yield 2 or more.

    These days most of the amboyna out there is the orange stuff.
    I was really happy to get this old red one.

    In an attempt to show the blocks more accurately I am experimenting with a scanner.
    It shows the color and grain really good, but does not show the figure and dimensions of the block very well.

    The amboyna did not turn out as red as I had expected. More like a red/orange. But I still like it.
    What do you guys think? Is this stuff any good?

    Even dark amboyna is kinda light-colored to me but I'm sure there's a market for this stuff, Mark.

    Here are the same blocks but a photo instead of a scan.
    I think it makes the pieces look more lifelike. But maybe it's just me.

    I think you should do both. If I had to choose one, I'd go for the scan. I like seeing the detail and I think the lighting will be more consistent.
