Cocobolo is a true rosewood (dalbergia retusa). Cocobolo is about the closest thing to the prized Brazilian rosewood(dalbergia nigra). Cococbolo has many uses; fine furniture, turnings, game calls, flooring, marquetry and its tonal qualities make it great for any stringed or woodwind instrument.
This was a fun little project. The scale is quite off, but we have decided to call this “cocobolohenge”. We have oriented some of our smaller cocobolo squared cants to resemble the famous Stonehenge. Again it is not even close to scale, but it looks cool.
We have another 8000 board feet of material some cants are over 9’ long and up to 15” wide. I will be posting when we cut a big one.
I love logs and lumber:)
