Bolivian Rosewood (Macherium scleroxylon) shares many characteristics of true rosewoods including its colors, working properties and density. Colors range from violet streaks to coffee browns and black. The trees grow in Bolivia and some of the surrounding Countries. Logs are small and usually only produce umber 3-6" wide.  Only a small percentage of logs large enough to cut high quality wide boards (boards 8” are considered wide for this species).  Bolivian Rosewood makes a nice choice for acoustic and electric guitars but is also used for anything from high end veneers for corporate jets to jewelry boxes and everything in between. Other common names are Pau Ferro, Santos Rosewood, Morado, and others.  The large Brazil nut is produced by this important tree as well.

This wood is all kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. Nice lengths with good widths. Classic colors for the species. Dark dots indicate bug holes which are common for the species and these help give the boards the beautiful coloration.

3" end check at numbered end. Several bark incursions and knots on both faces. Full length check along sapwood edge on numbered face only. This board could yield some Classic Guitar back and side sets.
