Can someone tell me where I can buy rosewood lumber? Looking for 8” wide x 4’ long and 4/4” thick or so.
I need a good quality deep red quarter sawn lumber.

I picked some up from here a couple of weeks ago and it is beautiful. I believe they ship also. There must be a place closer to you, it’s just a matter of finding it. Good luck

Look on ebay too. People sell all kinds of exotics and rosewood
is used in instrument making too.

I am in New Orleans. Not sure where you are, but there are plenty of lumber yards in the area one of which can probably get you rosewood, if they don’t have it in stock.

Liberty Lumber, Riverside Fine Lumbers, Carruth Bros. Lumber, Wilson Bourg Lumbers, Gueydan Lumber

There are probably others, but those are the ones I have worked with. Riverside would be your best bet probably, but its way out in NO East.

Barry, We sell Rosewood, but 8” widths are rare as rare can be. I have seen probably three boards that wide in the past few years. Most is typically 3”-6” in width with an occasional 7” board here and there. Lengths are good to 5’ usually, but 8” wide boards are generally snapped up for musical instrument stock well before it gets out of the distributors yards, if it is any good at all. Best of luck with your search!
