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 .
