This rare Cocobolo was imported in 2014 from Costa Rica with the proper CITES required documentation. It has been air dried and is mostly dry; however, there may be some residual moisture, especially in thicker pieces. Quarter sawn wood will suit instruments well! Other uses may include boxes, pen blanks, knife scales, intarsia, inlay, jewelry, and other fine, small projects. Large pieces may be used for furniture. Ends are typically wax sealed while some boards and blanks are completely wax sealed. The live edge has some checks/splits in the edge grain, that is about an 1-1/4" deep into the sapwood. Nice color contrast and tap tone. Would be great for ukuleles.
