Bocote Turning Square (12" x 1-1/4" x 1-1/4")

INCLUDES 1 WOOD BLANK (several blanks are shown to indicate the range of color/grain to expect). 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 to brown while blacks remain. The wood is exceptional to turn, with a natural silky smooth polish that is easily attainable. These dry and ready to use turning squares are perfect for any project you have in mind!
