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 is very old material that is bone dry and ready for your creations. An end or edge check may be present. Please see photos for irregular shapes or live edges. An occasional pin hole may be present. This is high quality stock that is perfect for high end woodworking projects. This wood ships to the USA only. The white chalk identifies where the checks and splits are on this piece. Please do not plan on using the 2 inches from the live edge on this piece. This piece easily fits a baritone ukulele and is a bookmatched set (back only).
