One of the rarest, most sought after Rosewoods in the World, Brazilian Rosewood is renowned for its acoustic properties and elegant, colorfully patterned grain. Brazilian Rosewood works and glues well turning to an ultra-smooth natural polish. This has been surfaced on one or two sides to keep the wood as thick as possible for end use. This is very old material that is bone dry and ready for your creations! Imported into Las Angeles Port in the mid 1960's. Quarter sawn. 3" check at the numbered end. Will turn away. Beautiful brick red and black.
