Fancy Mexican Bocote, Get it While You Can
Bocote (Cordia eleagnoides) is a small tree that typically produces lumber that is 3-7' long by 3-6" wide by 1-2" thick. 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. Occasionally boards will have Birdseye figure, beautiful swirling patterns, and/or good variegation. Yellows fade tobrown while blacks remain. The wood is exceptional to turn, with a natural silky smooth polish that is easily attainable.
