Blue Mahoe is a somewhat rare wood that is native to Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and some other Caribbean countries. As the name implies, it is blue.
There is an organization that harvests some of this wood in an environmentally responsible fashion. You can see their website here.
They don’t always have wood available. However, I received an e-mail from them today. They are harvesting some trees and they will do some custom cutting. I will copy and paste the e-mail below. I have purchased wood from them before and I recommend them to anyone interested in this wood.
Dear valued buyers of our wood,
Just to let you know, we have been felling, and will be milling some grand mahoe trunks later this week and into the next.
We are happy to cut to order, so if you have some size preferences for a lumber order, or blanks, wood will air dried, and be ready to ship, Nov/Dec 2010/Jan 2011.
Let me know,
Ms. Thrity Vakil, Director,
