I know understand why I have never heard/ seen some of these exzotics. 4.6BF at 78.54 a BF for two book matched pieces. NO THANKS. It is really nice stuff, but wow

Thanks for the response Shawn – the boards with figure command a much higher price. We also have some excellent boards with great color and minimal figure that are less than half this BF price if you are looking for economical true Rosewood – It just comes down to the caliber material you prefer working with. Also fyi, cocobolo just bumped up to appendix 2 on CITES about a month ago so this is effecting the price as well. Here is a link to read more about the properties of this species – (Cocobolo Rosewood) http://savagewoods.com/cocobolo/
Best Regards, – Ivan @ SavageWoods

NO NO NO, that is amazing material. I am spoiled with a local sawyer less than 2 miles away. He saws the tree that come his way. My prices are as follows: R-O@$1 BF, W-O@$1.50BF, ash@$.75 BF, Cherry@$1 BF, and walnut @$1.25 BF. Some times he has some sassafras that is really cool when it is quarter sawn. but nothing he has is over $2 BF. also once in awhile I him out I take him logs that I come across that are just too nice to make firewood out of.

This wood is so incredibly beautiful. It looks as good unfinished as most over woods finished.
