Griffin Exotic Wood
 
 


Bolivian Rosewood
Also called "Pau Ferro" or "Morado"
(Machaerium scleroxylon)


This wood has excellent fine grain and very attractive stripes.  It is great to work, both as a turning and a furniture wood.  Recently, furniture companies have been realizing the great appeal of this wood for high end furniture.   This has driven up demand, and at the same time the Bolivian government is allowing much less of the wood to leave the country in log form where it can be cut into turning stock.   These two factors are driving up prices.   The wood is now becoming harder to get as quality turning blanks. Specific gravity is about .85 .

A very pretty blank of Bolivian Rosewood. This one has a moisture reading of 12.8%, so it is very close to dried to the standard 12% level. Nice flowing lines with some figure. A very tiny check in the black figured area on the front was filled with superglue before finishing. Very solid piece, and almost perfect. The piece in the photo above is the piece you will receive (Piece A).
