Details

Honduras rosewood (dalbergia stevensonii) Central America. Heartwood color can range from a deep brownish-purple to a light-brown. Most common is a brownish-mauve color. Sapwood is a striking contrast of creamy white. Grain is straight with a medium to fine texture. It has a moderate blunting effect on cutting edges due to its high density. Being hard and dense it has a somewhat resonant tone when tapped with a hard object, making it well-suited for acoustic guitars, xylophone keys, and other acoustic musical instruments. Larger blocks are +- 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.



  • Brownish-mauve color


  • Straight grain


  • Good tone wood


  • Has low to medium luster


  • Texture is medium to fine






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

    A mixed bag

    I ordered 5 pieces of this for a specific project. However, 2 of the blanks, and part of a 3rd were pieces with half of the blank containing the outer "white" wood which is completly useless to me. Will have to return 3 out of the 5 pieces. Kind of disappointing after paying shipping costs. Still love the other 2 pieces for my project. Turns and finishes very well. Nice wood if you can hand pick your pieces. 3 out of 5 stars because of odd pieces that were shipped.
