Shown bare wood, will deepen the red when you finish it (see photo of finished pieces further down this page).
.


There is no deeper and more vibrant red wood then Borneo rosewood, including bloodwood. Borneo rosewood has a finer grain with less noticeable pores than bloodwood in most cases. These pieces have been drying for about 2 years and are completely dry. We lost MORE than 50% of the wood to make these defect free pieces, there are a lot of losses taking this wood from wet to dry, even in the best case scenario. Borneo rosewood is now rare on the market, and flawless dry pieces like these are virtually unknown. Takes a polish like glass

Here are two larger pieces of borneo rosewood in bare wood (no finish on them).
The long square is the longest we have been able to make so far, as there are usually defects that keep sizes below 10 inches when you are cutting dried cants.
The board is a great craft or intarsia piece, for the best way to get a long lasting and super deep red in your work. No defects we can find.

NOTES: 13 is all heartwood (red), 14 has sapwood on one side (cream colored area)
