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. We have only a very small amount that will sell out quickly! Sunset wood comes from trees that are small and do not produce many usable pieces.
