    Alder

    Red Alder is the largest species of Alder in North America and one of the largest in the world, reaching heights of 19 to 29 m (65 to 97 ft). The tallest red alder recorded stood (105ft) tall. The name is from the bright reddish color that develops on bruised or scraped bark. The wood is favored for cabinet makers and is also used for furniture. It has become popular due to its lower price when compared to other hardwoods. In the world of musical instrument construction, red alder is valued for bass and electric guitar bodies as it has good tonal qualities and is very light for its size. The lighter the guitar, the less tired the musician at the end of a concert. Alder is frequently used by Native Americans for making bowls, masks, handles, and other small articles. The wood has an oily smoke when it burns lending itself to smoking fish (primarily salmon) in the Pacific Northwest.

    Amazon Rosewood

    Macacauba or Platymiscium pinnatumis a member of a distinct variety of Platymiscium species that grows from about 15 degrees North of the Equator to the North third of Brazil. Amazon Rosewood is, in our opinion, the most defined and beautiful Platymiscium of them all. Over a decade ago, the Owner of Cook Woods discovered this species at a mill on the Amazon River while taking a small local boat procuring sources for the World's finest woods. Colors of Amazon Rosewood range from rich reds, orange, pink, and violet to black lines with defined sapwood. No two boards are alike so expect a combination of colors and contrast in a stunning visual palette! This wood is ideal for musical instruments as it has a strong visual and tonal presence. Material is kiln dried. Pin holes are found only in a few boards but are not considered a defect because of the Ambrosia-like color streaks produced. This wood is high quality, unique, and rare.

It is logged by hand with mules in a selective cutting method in Southern Mexico that is very sustainable and responsible. Bocote is related to Ziricote and possesses some similar characteristics including black lines, density, and overall appearance. This Central American hardwood is more plentiful than Ziricote so the cost is 25-35% less. Occasionally boards will have Birdseye figure, beautiful swirling patterns, and/or good variegation. Yellows fade to a tobacco brown while blacks remain. The wood is exceptional to turn, with a natural silky smooth polish that is easily attainable.

    Brazil Nut

    This wood is from the same tree that produces the Brazil Nut (Bertholletia excelsa). Up to 20,000 tons of Brazil Nuts are gathered and sold every year. Many trees were planted in the 70s and 80s to increase production and ease of gathering the nuts; and yet wild trees produce more nuts than those that have been plantation grown.Trees grow to a height of 160 ft. and diameters of 3-6 ft. These are some of the largest trees in the Amazon, living for 500 to 1,000 years. Trunks are smooth with grayish bark and straight for up to half of the trees height.The large crown towers over the sub canopy trees with long branches surrounding the other trees. The heavy, coconut shaped seed pods are 5-6 in diameter and contain a small hole at one end, which enables large rodents like the Agouti to gnaw it open. They then eat some of the nuts inside while burying others for later use; some of these are able to germinate into new Brazil nut trees. Most of the seeds are "planted" by the Agoutis in shady places. The young saplings may have to wait years in a state of dormancy for a tree to fall and sunlight to reach them before they start growing again. Brazil Nut wood is extremely dense and can be used for a variety of projects from furniture, boxes, instruments to flooring and more! It is moderately smooth grained and can take a smooth natural polish. Interlocked grain produces ribbon figure on rift and quarter sawn boards. The wood is called anything from exotic Almond to Brazil Nut wood.

    Camatillo

    Related to Brazilian Kingwood (Dalbergia caerensis), this beautiful Rosewood is rich with vivid purple & violet colors. Though related to Kingwood, the colors in this wood are more intense and the grain more demarcated. No two boards are alike; this is a very diverse and unique wood. Camatillo comes from Central America where it is selectively logged by hand and harvested from the forest by mules in an environmentally friendly manner. The grain in this wood is rarely straight and generally is figured. There is sapwood on most boards as the tree is relatively small, producing less heartwood than many Rosewoods. This extremely rare Rosewood species holds its purple color better than any other Rosewood.

    Camphor Burl

    Camphor Burl, Cinnamumum camphor, is a rare burl from Southeast Asia that is highly prized. Camphor burl is very stable, requiring little special care in its conversion from large wet burls to cut blanks; unlike the majority of other burl species where the burls are very delicate requiring years of knowledge and experience to carefully cut and season. Camphor burl is usually available in veneer form and occasionally blocks and squares. We sell a lot of camphor burl for electric guitars as it makes a delightful top! The wood has a strong fragrance of root beer which is typically either loved or despised. Most like the smell although it can be very strong with green stock.

    Cherry

    Prunus serotina is commonly called Black Cherry, Wild Black Cherry, Rum Cherry, or Mountain Black Cherry. The wood produced is hard, reddish-brown and is valued as a hardwood for wood turning, cabinetry, musical instruments and more. American Black Cherry wood is also used for smoking foods (particularly meats) in North America, as it lends a distinct and pleasant flavor to the product. Young trees have a straight trunk and symmetrical conical crown, becoming rounded to irregular on old trees. They grow to heights of 50-100 tall with diameters of 1-1/2 5 feet. The bark is smooth purplish-brown with prominent horizontal grey-brown lenticels on young trees, becoming thick dark blackish-brown and fissured on old trees. This is a striking batch of very colorful and highly figured American Black Cherry that has been kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. An occasional rough edge or planer bite may be present. You will assuredly love each and every one of these very unique boards!

    Cherry, Brazilian

    Known as Jatoba in Brazil, Brazilian Cherry is a large tree with white blossoms above the rainforest canopy; these scattered trees are a remarkable sight when flying over at a low altitude. Generally, trees grow in a range from Southern Mexico to South/Central Brazil. Jatoba is dense and durable and has become a favorite for flooring and cabinet manufacturing. Rich, warm coloration varies with combinations of reds, golden browns, and green streaks that are more pronounced than American Cherry. There are usually interesting patterns in the wood as well. Jatoba is denser than American cherry by 30% which is great for turners wanting a natural high polish and a bowl that will not dent as easily as American Cherry.

    Cocobolo

    Cocobolo grows on a thin band along the Pacific Coast of Mexico down through Central America. Our stock is selectively cut and logged by hand in Central America, squared by chainsaw, and drug out of the forest by Mules. This is a very environmentally low impact procedure. Cocobolo is a true Rosewood, similar in color & tap tone to Brazilian Rosewood and considered to be a good substitute. It is denser than most Rosewoods and oilier. For best results in gluing, epoxy is recommended. Cocobolo has great working properties & turns to a naturally glass-like polish. The colors range from any combination of orange, red, yellow, & black to violet. For this reason, it has also been called rainbow wood. Cocobolo can cause respiratory and/or dermatological sensitization in certain people. As with all exotic hardwoods, please use proper care and safety equipment when working.

    This is true Desert Ironwood (Olynatesota), a unique species that is a staple for the carving trade in Mexico and is scarce on the US Market. Difficult to obtain and dry properly, this beautiful and very dense hardwood has a great deal of chatoyance (luster) which gives great depth and color to finished projects. When turned, Desert Ironwood produces an incredible finish that is glass-like andsilkysmooth to the touch. Colors range from black & brown to warm honey gold with a tinge of red. Checks are normal with this species as it dries in the desert for years before being harvested in dead tree trunks or fallen / dead limbs; we typically cut off95% of them. Creative artisans use crushed or powderedArizonaTurquoise to fill voids. Our Desert Ironwood is from the desert Southwest.

    Itauba

    Itauba is a little known species in the United States. From Eastern Brazil, its colors range from reds to browns with the overlying feel of African Sapele that is slightly denser. The wood turns well with sharp tools. Grain is generally interlocked, giving some three dimensional properties to quareter sawn faces. The wood has moderate to high blunting of tools but saws without difficulty. It glues well under normal circumstances. This is a great, low cost substitute for Mahogany!

    Juniper, a thick bushy tree with disheveled appearance, grows in the arid Western United states in higher elevations above 2,500 ft.. Trees generally grown from 25 to 50 ft. with some exceptions being up to 80 ft. Diameters are typically from 12" to 4 ft. in diameter with most 18-24". Large knots are pervasive and hollows in larger logs render them useless for lumber. Lumber has a pungent odor when milling (like other cedars). The wood is ideal for rustic mantles, end table tops, bar tops, interior siding, bowls, spindle turning and more! Knots, splits, and checks provide character to the species. Juniper has a beginner skill level for pens and turning. It is inexpensive and generally easy to work.

    Katalox

    Katalox, or Mexican Royal Ebony, is a dense Central American hardwood - Swartzia cubensis. It is listed in several USDA publications as a suitable substitute for African Gabon Ebony in stringed instruments (usually fingerboards and bridges). Trees aretypically 40-75' tall with diameters of 12" to 20" and prefer soils that drain well; they do not grow well in areaswithwater saturated soil.. Similar to a true Ebony, only about 20-30% of any log produces the dark heartwood. The dark purple/black color accents well with the creamy/golden sapwood to create contrast that can be well utilized for a unique look in your projects.Every board is different and one of a kind! The wood turns well and takes a nice finish. Common uses are fine boxes, musical instruments, flooring, and other fine woodworking projects.

    Ko’u, pronounced (koh-oo), is a rare hardwood that grows in the coastal regions of the Hawaiian Islands from sea level to roughly 100 ft. but may grow at up to 450 ft. above sea level.  Almost totally destroyed by a moth in the 1800’s, it is one of the rarest woods from Hawaii. Ko'u was prized by Hawaiian royalty for food use: poi bowls, calabashes and utensils as Ko'u does not impart a taste to food. Ko'u is a species of flowering trees in the borage family, Boraginaceae.  The tree is known by a variety of names including Mareer, Kerosene wood (because of its ease in burning), Manjak, Glueberry, Narrow-leafed Bird Lime Tree, "Kanawa," Tou, and Kou.subcordata. It grows to 23–33 ft. at maturity, but may be as tall as 49 ft. Trunks are generally leaning and produce small log sections from 1-3 or 4 ft. lengths. Logs are generally hollow. The tree produces fruit that is buoyant and may be carried by ocean currents and thus spread throughout tropical coast lines. The wood of the tree has a specific gravity of 0.45, is soft, durable, and easily worked, taking a nice smooth polish when finished. We highly recommend this rare and prized species!

    Lacewood

    Despite being from Brazil and not from Australia, Brazilian Lacewood is still dubbed "lacewood" due to the medular rays that are similar to traditional Lacewood. Brazilian Lacewood has wider and thicker medular rays than Australian stock which allows more lumber to show the quarter sawn flecking when it is slightly off quarter. The wood is slightly coarser than traditional Lacewood and is susceptible to planer bite if blades are not sharp. It is a light weight exotic that is mills easily, kiln dried easily, and is relatively inexpensive as an exotic. The wood is not an irritant in most of the population unlike Austrailian Lacewood which effects about 20% of the population. A great selection for accent wood in boxes and more. Roupala Brasilences.

    Liquid Amber

    Liquid Amber, Liquidambar styraciflua, is a medium to large sized tree, growing anywhere from 3050 feet tall in ornamental plantings and150 feet tall in the wild.. Diameters reach24-40 inches. Trees can live up to four centuries when excellent environmental conditions exist. This is one of the most significant hardwoods in the Southeastern USA. The gum resin, for which the tree is named, exudes from the bark of the tree when wounded. It has several names including liquid amber and copalm balsam. The resin may be clear, reddish, or yellow, with a pleasant smell like ambergris. The earliest recorded record of Liquidambar styraciflua is in a work by Spanish naturalist Francisco Hernndez that was published in 1651. Hernandez describes the species as a large tree producing a fragrant gum resembling liquid amber, whence the genus name Liquidambar. The unique compound fruit is hard, dry, and globose, and ranges from 11.5" inches in diameter. The fruits are commonly a nuisance as the liquid amber fruits are roughly the size of walnuts but may have several hundred spines.Liquid Amber wood is a bright reddish brown (with the sapwood nearly white) and may have black grain in the heartwood. It is heavy, straight, satiny, and close-grained, taking a beautiful polish.

    Figured Marblewood, scientific name Marmaroxylon racemosum, is from Northeastern South America. Trees are typically 65-100 feet tall with a maximum base diameter of 2 feet. Heartwood is a yellow to golden brown, with irregular brown, purple, or black streaks. Sapwood is paler than the heartwood, and is a solid yellowish color lacking contrasting streaks: usually up to about 1 thick. The grain tends to be straight or slightly interlocked; texture is medium with open pores. The high contrast between the golden body and the much darker streaks give it an appearance somewhat similar to natural marble, hence the common name of Marblewood for this species. Marblewoods overall appearance is very similar to African Zebrawood although Marblewood tends to have a finer texture. Common uses for Marblewood include: flooring, sliced veneer, turned articles, cabinetry, gallery furniture, and fine woodworking.

    Masur Birch - NEW

    Grown in the forests of Northern Europe and harvested in winter from a frozen landscape, Masur Birch is a slow growing, short tree with a trunk covered by distinctive bumps and ridges that conceal a wood with a marble-like pattern. The most prominent patterns are under bark that shows a kind of bursting and cracking, as if the burl-character forces the volume out of the logs. This kind of pattern only appears when the tree has been in particular soil conditions. There are often live edges & pin holes associated with this species. Most of the wood has nice figuring that is very similar to burl or birdseye Maple though of a different origin. The creamy, golden color with occasional dark brown streaking yields stunning contrast for specialty and decorative items. Workability of this very rare wood is excellent. Our material is kiln dried and ready to use.

    Monkey Puzzle

    Described as beautiful and bizarre, the monkey puzzle tree, Araucaria araucana, is considered the nearest relative to the trees of the Carboniferous period, which was 300 million years ago. Araucaria araucana's sharp reptilian armor-like leaves prompted its common name. Archibald Menzies, a prolific plant collector, introduced the tree to England in 1795. The monkey puzzle tree quickly became popular among Victorian era gardeners who planted it in many gardens and parks around the world. The name Monkey puzzle is derived from the wood’s early cultivation in Britain in about 1850. Legend has it that an owner of a young tree specimen in Cornwall was showing it to a group of friends, and one made the remark, "it would puzzle a monkey to climb that". The popular name became, first “monkey puzzler”, then “monkey puzzle”. Prior to 1850, it had been called Joseph Bank's Pine or Chile Pine in Britain even though it is not a pine. There are no native monkey puzzle trees in the United States. The natural monkey puzzle tree is now found in two small areas in the Andes mountains of Chile and Argentina. It is a highly fire-adapted species, occurring in an area where fires have long been caused by volcanic activity. The tree can grow in North America along the coastal zone from coastal Virginia, down the Atlantic, west through Texas and up the Pacific coast to Washington. The monkey puzzle tree is a coniferous evergreen with evenly spaced, horizontal spreading branches that arranged in whorls around the trunk. Sharp, densely spaced, triangular leaves cover the branches. The leaves are 1-2 inches long and can remain alive on the branches for 10 to 15 years. With age, the tree loses its lower branches and develops an irregular shape with a flattened crown. In its native habitat, this species can grow up to 100-feet tall and 30-feet wide. The fine-grained wood has been used for furniture, boats and paper pulp. Over-harvesting and wildfires led the Chilean government to declare the species a national monument in 1990. In addition to the wood from the monkey puzzle tree, the seeds are also a valuable resource. They were once a food staple for the Pehuenche Indians, whose name literally meant, "people of the monkey puzzle." Local inhabitants still eat the seeds as a source of carbohydrates. Today, monkey puzzle trees grow around the world as ornamentals. Monkey puzzle wood works easily, making it ideal for turning & carving.

    Osage Orange, Maclura pomifera, is a beautiful wood from the southern Midwest! The heartwood is golden to bright yellow, which almost certainly ages to a darker medium brown with time: primarily due to exposure to UV light. Osage Orange is extremely durable and is considered to be one of the most decay resistant woods in North America. Working this wood can be difficult due to its hardness and density, though it is reported to have little dulling effect on cutting edges. It turns well, and also takes stains, glues and finishes well. Common uses include: Fence posts, dye, archery bows, musical instruments, turnings, and other small specialty wood items.

    Pacific Yew

    Pacific yew (Taxus brevafolia) is a small conifer tree that produces very little usable wood that is free of large knots, incursions, or voids. Dense and fine grained, it is a joy to turn and takes a finish that rivals many other hardwoods. As is grows very slowly under the forest canopy, it is not uncommon to have 50 growth rings per inch. Generally in a one acre square plot there may be 1-2 yew trees on average. Pacific Yew is easy to mill and glue. Uses include: Cabinet fronts, picture frames, long bows, and fine turned articles. Traditionally yew has been used for native American longbows as the wood is bendable and stiff which produces the ideal medium for a bow.

    Pyrus Communis, European Pearwood, is a beautiful finely grained wood that has an interesting past and future. Lumber is commonly steamed to bring our desirable colors such as pinks and reds. Steaming relieves stress just as in Madrona or Strawberry wood which has a strong resemblance to steamed European Pear and is sold as a less expensive alternative. Some logs have desirable "flame or curl" and produce beautiful lumber that is well suited for many uses. Straight or even grained wood is used for carving, chess men, and print blocks. Pear has also been dyed black as a substitute for ebony. "Flamed" stock is desirable for jewelry boxes, bowls, cabinets, and more. Guitars and recorders from the woodwinds can use "flamed" or fine even grained lumber interchangeably depending on the craftsman's desires. Our stock is usually kiln dried and may posses live edges.

    Pheasantwood, also known as Thailand cassia or Senna siamea, is a rare species of hardwood (scientific name: Cassia siamea), named after the black and golden figured patterns of a pheasant's tail feathers. The flat or slab sawn face shows the most finely defined patterns with contrasting golden and black streaks. Pheasant wood is a very close color and grain match to Desert Ironwood. It is excellent for fine articles such as boxes, pens, and more. It polishes easily and will reflect light with only a light sanding from 150 grit sand paper. Intense color reflections can be achieved with 320 grit and finer. Usually grown as an ornamental tree for showy flowers, this species is more difficult to obtain than Ebony and is a cherished wood from the Hawaiians to the South East Asians. This is an extremely rare wood is from the same forests that our Black & White and Mun Ebony are from in Laos. Once used in your project, youll be thrilled with the iridescence and fine grain that this wood produces.

    Port Orford Cedar

    Port Orford Cedar is a large, aromatic Cedar tree that is native to Oregon and California. It was first discovered near the city of Port Orford, Oregon and according to Wikipedia was introduced into cultivation in 1854, by collectors working for the Lawson & Son nursery in Edinburgh, Scotland, after whom it was named as Lawson Cypress by the describing botanist Andrew Murray. The USDA officially calls it by the name Port Orford cedar, as do most people in its native area, but some botanists prefer to use the name Lawson cypress. Port Orford cedar wood is fine grained and lightweight but strong & extremely resistant to rot. It has good tonal properties and a spicy, distinctive aroma! It is in high demand in Asia for religious uses, temples, and carvings. Turning blanks in this material are very rich in oil and turn easily. The aromatic resin pools in the stumps, forming an oily, dense consistency. This is a similar phenomenon to Moroccan Thuya burls, though Port Orford Cedar is slightly less dense than Thuya! We recommend a natural finish for turned articles. The more oils/resin in this wood, the more aromatic! Lumber and slabs of Port Orford Cedar can have less oil/resin and glue easily. When the wood is planed, it has a tendency to fuzz, but it can easily be sanded as a remedy. Our material was all salvaged from old growth trees/stumps that have lain dormant on the forest floor, sun bleached and aged for 40 to 70 years.

Generally strait grain stock is the rule for this wood but we cut a nice cluster burl tree that produced exceptional one of a kind figure. We have not seen a tree like this before or after this one! A special wood for unique projects! It glues and works satisfactorily. Australia.

The Mayans refer to this hardwood is Chakte Koke. For best results in finishing, please use a UV inhibitor as the wood turns honey/brown when exposed to sunlight. We have had good results with keeping the red color of this wood when it is finished. Another nice aspect of this hardwood is that it is excellent for turnery due to its great machinability. It can be used by anyone from the beginner to the experienced wood turner. Cosmocalyx spectabilis.

    Redwood is in the family of the largest living trees that have ever been on planet earth! Coastal redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) are the tallest trees but their cousin, the giant Sequoia (Sequoia gigantium) take the record for the largest living tree in the World. In the mid 1800's logging operations commenced in the forests where these beautiful trees grow, leaving behind a path of stumps and logs that were deemed unusable. Today, stumps and logs less than 16' long are being extracted from these areas. Most of this salvaged wood still produces solid wood that has been aged and slowly dried over a hundred or more years. Redwood is suitable for large tables, bar tops, mantles, cabinets, Guitar tops, and turnings. Figured boards are sometimes available with flamed fiddle back or burl eyes and can produce beautiful bass or electric guitars. Our Redwood is all salvaged.

    Santos mahogany (Myroxylon balsamum) has rich reddish-brown or purplish-brown coloring. Also known as Cabreuva, or Cuban Mahogany, the wood has a similar grain structure and appearance to true Mahogany. The wood is slightly denser than Mahogany and is easily worked with power tools. The pores in the grain are smaller than Walnut. The pleasant, aromatic fragrance smells more like a Rosewood than the majority of true rosewoods (which are Dalbergia genus). Ribbon figured grain is present in quarter sawn lumber due to the interlocked grain structure. Lumber is produced in widths of 4-8" with wider widths being scarce. The tree ranges from Cuba south to Argentina.

Heartwood color is tan or orange to rose-red, often streaked with purple or brown and becoming brownish-yellow to medium brown on exposure. The sapwood is yellowish and paler than the heartwood, but not sharply demarcated. Shibadan’s bending strength is medium and crushing strength is high. It is easy to work & finish, taking staining and polishing satisfactorily. This rare South American hardwood is from the genus, Aspidosperma.

    Sindora Burl

    For the first time in 16 years, we have in stock Southeast Asian Sindora Burl (Sindora siamensis). This is likely the only time that we will have this rare burl in our inventory. These burls yield a very gnarly and highly figured grain with a wide variety of brown, golden, and tan colors. Although difficult to turn, it is worth the effort as it shows three dimensional qualities that are highly sought after by fine artisans. The gnarly grain makes the wood almost impossible to split which is an excellent attribute for pen turners needing to drill and glue small, thin pieces. Some of the blanks in this special have an exceptionally high amount of burl eyes per square inch, making it an exceptional choice for fine articles such as knife handles. All blanks have dried for 2 or more years; most are dry but expect some residual moisture in the larger pieces. This is all the stock that we have and when it is sold out it is gone, so shop quickly for the best selection.

    Sitka Spruce

    This majestic Spruce (Picea sitchensis) is named after the Southeast Alaskan island of Sitka. Sitka Spruce grows along a narrow band within 50 miles of the coast of Northern California to Alaska at elevations of 3,000' msl or below. In Oregon giants grow to diameters of up to 8-1/2' with 230' heights. We milled one of these giants and were able to produce quartersawn boards that were 36" and wider! Oregon and California trees have coarser grain while their Northern counterparts produce fine grained wood that is perfect for applications such as instrument soundboards, pianos, and wing spars in aircraft such as high performance biplanes. The wood is light brown on exposure and is stronger than steel for its weight. The famous airplane made by Howard Hughes during the second World War the "Spruce Goose" is not made of Spruce but rather laminated yellow Birch plywood. When in the woods, a non-scientific way to identify a Sitka Spruce is by grabbing its needles. If your hand is bleeding you have most likely found it! The needles grow all around the limbs and are very stiff and sharp. Found in the USA and Canada.

    Snakewood

    Piratinera guianensis, Snakewood, is also known as Letter wood, Speckled wood, and Leopard wood. Its Latin name literally means Guiana sea pirate. Considered by experts to be the World's rarest commercially available species, Snakewood is difficult to work (dry wood can still check if it is heated while sanding). Despite its difficultly in working, it is a beautiful wood that has rich brown, red and black in a traditional Viper pattern. This is undoubtedly where it acquired the name Snakewood. The Snakewood tree is small and slender growing only up to a foot in diameter and 40-60 feet tall. There is a varying amount of figure in each tree so each log can produce very different grades of lumber. Uses include: violin bows, parasols, canes, pens, bottle stoppers, umbrella handles, pool cues, fishing pole butts and more! Primarily found in Suriname.

    Snakewood logs are also sold by the log or 1/2 log, please inquire

    Spanish Cedar

    This Brazilian species, Cedrela spp., is also known as Cedro, Spanish Cedar, or Brazilian Cedar. This is used extensively in the USA for cigar and other box liners, but is also used for pattern making and boat building. Though the wood machines and woods easily, it generally requires good dust collection equipment as the aromatic smell is quite pungent when milling. Rich golden browns and subtle reds combine with a slight iridescence to make this wood aesthetically pleasing.

    Emanating from Asia, Sunset wood is a unique species that is slightly oily like Teak and has a similar musky smell. The wood ages to take on sunset like yellows, oranges, and darker shades with exposure. Excellent for inlay and intarsia, this wood is rare and in short supply. We had a small amount of this wood 5 years ago and have not been able to get more until know. Sunset wood comes from trees that are small and do not produce many usable pieces. Sunset wood is truly beautiful in appearance, easy to turn and polishes well.

    Originating in South East Asia, Teak (Tectonis grandis) has been described as God's gift to boat builders. It is impervious to water and can tolerate brutal conditions that no other wood can survive. The wood is dense and oily to the touch and is described by some as having a slightly musty smell. Excellent for boat repairs for anything from steps to tables and fittings. Trees are girdled several years before the tree is felled to allow the sap to flow out enough to lighten the log for river floating. This species is becoming difficult to obtain in a reliable supply.

    Thuya Burl

    Thuya Burl

    Thuya wood (pronounced twee-ya) is from the Thuya tree (Tetraclinis articulate in Latin, and Araar in Moroccan). This biblical tree is a conifer from the cedar family, and is exclusively native to Morocco. This highly praised conifer grows only in the forests of the Atlas mountains east of Essaouira, the beautiful coastal town famous for its ancient and contemporary history, museums, art galleries, world music festival, and above all for its Thuya wood craftsmanship. Thuya wood was highly praised by Romans and Greeks, and its oils were used in religious rituals and ceremonies. Thuya trees reach maturity over many decades. Still the praised part of this tree is not the trunk, but the burl buried in the ground. The burl has a deeper color, a more concentrated aroma, and a fascinating grain. Today these burls are very scarce and hard to locate, extract, and transport. High demand over the centuries has greatly reduced the Thuya forests, and looking for underground burls is something like sifting through sand for grains of gold. Moreover, most of these burls are very small, therefore the fact that most of the items made from this luxurious wood are of a small nature. Another hindrance is that burls generally have large splits and defects that need to be cut out. When luck strikes and a large solid burl is found, it is bid on by artisans, and is sold to the highest bidder. Burls are moved from mountainous areas on mules and donkeys as they are the only form of transportation suited to the task. All that having been said, the real value of the Thuya handcrafted goods is in the highly skilled artists who intricately design Thuya burls into breath taking masterpieces.

The heartwood is marketed in veneer form as Tineo. Heartwood colors are strikingly beautiful with a bluish black variegated stripe through pinkish red. Steinway Piano Company makes a high end grand piano out of this wood! Tineo is unstable until dried with considerable shrikage during the drying process. Our larger turning stock is sold freshly cut and will need to be twice turned or allowed to move after shaping. Lumber is dry and usually surfaced on two sides. The wood is easy to work and glues well. Subtle and very exotic!

    Tulipwood

    Dalbergia variabilis or Dalbergia frutescens. Tulipwood is also called: jacaranda, bahia rosewood, pink wood, jacaranda Rosa, and bois de rose. This rosewood is a small tree (shrub) from Brazil that averages 2-10" in diameter without sapwood. Most billets are 3-5" in diameter as this is a rare species and is only found in small 1" or 2" lumber or veneer and is not plentiful in either. There is a prominent heart defect that prevents many clean boards over 4-5" in width. In fact the average width is only 2-3/8". Weighing about 60 pounds per cubic foot, the wood is dense and takes a very nice polish. Tulip is prone to splitting when drilling holes for pens so use a sharp bit, letting the bit cut without forcing it into the end grain. Used for fine articles including cutlery, turning, jewelry boxes, and pens.

    Claro Walnut (Juglans hindsi) is a unique Walnut species that grows right around the area where Cook Woods is located. Combining beautiful violet and brownish black streaks with the browns or Eastern walnut (Juglans Nigra). Claro walnut and English walnut have been favored for high end rifles and shotguns by many over the years. They are also used for guitars of various kinds and many other applications including fine furniture, boxes, and high quality turned items. Most of the supply originates in orchards as either production walnut trees (English grafted to the Claro roots) or wind row trees to slow the wind and show property lines (Claro without graft). Claro is a beautiful wood that is in high demand and short supply. Claro Walnut is dense but works and finishes well with the use of a grain sealer.

Color variations are due to the varied climates and soil conditions in which the trees grows. Juglans walnut is translated to "white walnut" so finding dark striping and marble cake figure is the rare exception. This wood has been prized for centuries for firearm stocks and fine furniture. It works and finishes much like American black walnut.

    Known as Chico Zapote in the Yucatan, this larger than average rainforest tree grows to a height of 60-85 feet and a diameter of 20-30". First logs are up to 30 to 40 feet to the first limb. The trunks have interesting machete cross hatching on all of them because the resin from the trunk of this tree is collected to make "Chiclets gum". A synthetic gum is now used but there is still a demand from the Japanese for the real Chiclets resin. The tree also produces a tasty, sweet fruit which is used for anything from ice cream to beverages. As a result of the scarification of the bark, there are interesting patterns on some boards. Typical boards have Maroon red heartwood with a creamy white sapwood. Zapote is difficult to work with a strong tendency to check when freshly cut. Our stock is air dried for up to 5 years!
