Awhile back a LJ posted some picks of a small exotic wood supplier in St. Pete FL which I never knew was there but I do now and I have to say Cocobolo is my new favorite wood because with every layer that is sanded or planed off it is a new discovery in color and wood grain and a trip through the jointer or planer is about it the wood requires minimal sanding. this is my first box made with the Cocobolo and it wont be my last, I have 2 coats of wax on it as of now I will add one more and buff it out to a nice sheen but that will be it I want the natural beauty to show.
Thank you for looking and please visit there site and give the owner a call my first trip which I think it was close to 2 hours but he has beauty in every corner and is willing to take the time with you if you can go in person or if you order over the net.
