Bolivian Rosewood (Machaerium scheleroxylon), sometimes referred to as morado wood, is deep, dark, chocolate brown to purple-black in color with occasional strips of even darker grain patterns. This species is hard and heavy with a fine texture in variable tones and when worked, exhibits a smell reminiscent of walnut. It machines well with sharp hand and power tools. It is excellent for turning. Common uses include veneer, musical instruments, cabinetry, flooring, interior trim, turning, and other small specialty wood objects.
