Product Information:

Chechen is a striking species with colors that are highly varied—red, orange and brown contrasted with darker stripes of blackish brown. Because of the coloration it is sometimes referred to as Caribbean rosewood. Overall it is easy to work, with the exception of planing the interlocking grain. Excellent for box makers and turners. Native to Central America.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Comments about Chechen 2" x 6" x 6" :

    I turned a bowl in this wood in one day, from mounting to finishing. The bowl was one of the best bowls I have ever turned. The figure was amazing, and with a bit of oil and a thin cut of shellac, it has an amazing finish. The wood looks almost metallic when done. My favorite piece to date.
