Product Information:

(Astronium Graveolens)Jobillo (Ho be yo) from Central America has a light reddish brown heartwood streaked with sharply contrasting dark reddish to black band that resemble burn marks. This wood is hard and heavy but turns well and will take a fine polish. This member of the cashew family produces stunning turned pieces because of contrasting nature of its stripes.

  • Heartwood is reddish brown to red
  • Narrow to wide irregular stripes of medium to heavy dark brown/black
  • Execellent for turning
  • Takes a high polish
  • Common uses: carving, turned objects, and small wood specialty objects such as knife handles

  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    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.

    Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ΒΌ" of size listed.

    Plywood. Sizes are nominal. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Comments about Jobillo 2" x 2" x 12" :

    Really nice piece of stock. I cut some for Bottle Stoppers and then made the rest into Pen blanks. Very ecconomical when you do it that way.
