East Indian Rosewood is set apart from many woods through its range of colors. Each piece is unique, with any combination of black, violet, brown, purple, Olive green, and blue undertones. These turning blanks contain residual moisture. Ends are wax sealed. An occasional surface check or minor end check may be present. Rosewoods take an exceptionally high polish and this species is no exception! The oily nature of the wood contributes to the high natural polish. This species is ideal for all woodworkers from beginner to expert. It cannot ship outside of the USA.
