Go Bonkers for Bocote!
Bocote 10-7-16

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. 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. Exceptional material with incredible color! Yellows fade to a tobacco brown while blacks remain. Material is dry and ready to use. We also have 8/4 thick material that is air dried.
