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:)

That is really stretching this post and calling it a finished project just to sell some lumber…but if you can avoid some advertising costs?

I’m in the process of designing another clock (see my site: and I’m strongly considering cocobolo in the design. This will be a large clock and require a fair amount of wood. Let’s talk!

yes, it does look like advertising. But, I’m looking for another supplier for small quantities. I signed up for your newsletter and will find an opportunity to visit your Sarasota shop.

Jason, I’m surprised the administrators of our “site” are okay with non-projects on these pages. So all I have to do to get exposure is send in photos of milled lumber?
I can just imagine what many of the true woodworkers of Lumberjocks could create with your enviable lumber!

Have your say...
