Flamewood
(dalbergia cochinensis)


Flamewood is also known as Thai rosewood. The botanical name is dalbergia cochinensis. A very rare rosewood that is restricted for imnport through a permit process. Almost never imported anymore. Color can vary from a light orange to a deep purple, possibly due to growing locale or different sub-species. The orange type sometimes has black lines, but usually very few. The tap tone is wonderful. Very limited supply on the market.
FLAMEWOOD CAN NOT BE EXPORTED (APPLIES TO Flamewood only--thuya burl still ok to export ).

Actual pieces shown, Click photo for second view. This rosewood is almost unknown on the market currently. These pieces were imported before the current import rules took effect. NOTE: G and J have a small burl cluster located on one edge. This is somewhat uncommon. These purple pieces show you the incredible color range in dalbergia conchinchinensis. We don't know if this is due to growing conditions, sub-species, or possibly the age of the tree. This wood is also called Siamese rosewood, and is heavily restricted for further import. (NO exports) NOTES: The photos have red areas, but the wood has very little of that, more deep purple. We used no flash and just sunlight, but the camera sees the wood as having these red areas we just don't see in person (we do see some red, but way less than the camera sees).

Thuya Burl
(tetraclinis articulata)

This beautiful burl comes from Morocco.  Reportedly it comes from the root systems of trees which have died a long time ago.  It is very difficult to find as the tree tops have disappeared years ago, leaving small depressions in the ground where it is dug to see if a burl is there.  It has a characteristic smell and a very fine grain.  The color may very from deep reddish to bronze to tan.  The black spots may be sparse or more packed together.  Even though the tree is a conifer, the wood is very hard and somewhat oily.  A favorite turning wood for years.
Now becoming rare due to import problems and lack of good quality.

Actual pieces shown, order below. These pieces are completely dried old stock. Good pieces like this usually come from old stock. These came from the supply of a long-closed gunmaker in Eastern Europe who used the wood for high end rifle stocks. Even with best quality pieces, most of the wood doesn't have the eyes close enough to look good in a square, these are cut in a very premium way to get the best figure. If the cart gives you an out of stock notice with a quantity of 1, that means that piece is sold already. REFRESH your page to see the most updated version available.

Notes: Piece 0 has a natural set of divots visible in side 3. No checking though.
