Product Information:

The color turns deep orange red with exposure. It is a hard and heavy wood with irregular grain with a medium fine texture. Like most rosewoods, it has natural oils that give it excellent resistance to decay. Cocobolo is used for fine furniture, musical instruments, turnings, and other small specialty objects, excellent turning properties. Larger blocks are sawn to +/- 1/4" of size listed, smaller blocks +/- 1/8". Spindle stock (1-1/2" - 2") dimensions are +/- 1/8". Grain runs with the longest dimension. Central America.

    Comments about Cocobolo 1.5" x 1.5" x 18" :

    Cocobolo is a gorgeous wood, and is great to work with (if you are not allergic to it) but you never know what you are going to get with it. The colors vary greatly. from yellow to extremely dark brown. This is a wood you may want to see in person if you are particular with the shade you want. The price was great [...] but the peice I got I did not like the color of. Which is no fault of the company. All just preference.
