Rosewood question

I've bought a a board of rosewood and it has something that looks like tiny open grains.
Is it suppose to be like that? Are they suppose to be filled and/or sealed?

That sounds like Indonesian rosewood and it has pores in it. It will benefit from a sealer coat of crazy glue or sanding sealer during final sanding. It can be irritating to the eyes and upper respitory track during sanding so use a mask.
