Bocote
(cordia elaeagnoides or cordia gerascanthus)
Bocote (bah--coat--ee) is a wood which can vary a great deal in appearance.  The grain may have nice contrast and figure as seen above and is sometimes straighter with less of a tan and more of a greenish overall color.   The lines may or may not swirl.  The average specific gravity is about .85 with some variance in diferent pieces.  The wood is somewhat oily.  It can be rough turned and set aside to dry (either coat it with a wax emulsion or put it in a paper bag).   It can generally not be air dried in pieces thicker than 1.5". The wood comes from Mexico.
