Not really. I get alot of my exotics from a fellow Lumberjock I have been friends with for 20+ years. Olive wood I got a decent supply of at the woodworking show years ago.

What is your concern?

Just buy from US seller and nothing really to worry about. Never had any issues with the stuff I have bough over the years.

I buy most of my exotic turning squares off ebay, never had any trouble, just look at the feedback if you are worried.

ive purchased padauk,purpleheart,flame maple, and bubinga off of ebay from various sellers and have been happy.
a little lookin into the amount of sales and reviews helps me determine of ill buy from them.

p.s.
im sure someone will be along to say when you say rosewood, you really meant to say alder. :)

$39 for 1 sg ft. which at this thickness is also a BF. I would be looking around locally for a source. Might be less money
