Details

Bocote (Cordia spp.) has a yellowish-brown body with dramatic dark brown to almost black stripes. Color tends to darken with age. Grain patterns can be quite striking, particularly on flatsawn areas. It’s not uncommon to see many “eyes” and other figuring in Bocote, but this figuring does not seem to present any special challenges in machining, unlike knots. Some species may contain silica that will dull cutters. On the whole, Bocote is easily worked and machined with good results. Although Bocote has a fairly high amount of natural oils present, gluing is usually problem-free. Most species come from Mexico and Central/South America, though certain species occur in Africa. Slab measures 1-1/4" x 10-3/4" x 44" and has been surfaced on both sides.

Notes:
  • 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.
