Cocobolo

Latin: Dalbergia retusa Origin: Central America

After the ban on Brazilian Rosewood (Dalbergia nigra), Cocobolo became the new sweetheart of the Rosewoods. Beloved for the rich, varying colors and swirling grain patterns it has been a favorite for woodturners and luthiers for many years. With the addition of this species to the CITES II appendix the availability is becoming much  more difficult. We do have a very good inventory of pre-CITES material that is still for sale. Get some before its all gone!

Below is a video taken by Rocky in 2013, explaining the varying color of Cocobolo.
