Natural Woods

 

 

Tulipwood is a true rosewood and comes from Brazil. It is a rare wood and we use very little of it -- for pens and for inlay details.

 

 

 

 

 

Cocobolo is our most popular wood and we use it for over 60% of our work. We buy it from a harvester that works with the Mexican forestry department for sustained yield practices that include inventorying available material and replanting. It is beautiful, dense, and somewhat oily, alloying for a rich natural finish. 

 

 

 

We use birdseye maple harvested in the Eastern United States and selected for dense figure. It is not a separate species, but a small percent of harvested maple shows this pattern that earns this designation. 

 

 

 

 

Bocote is grows in areas near cocobolo, and is harvested by the same supplier.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bloodwood is a Brazilian wood known for its rich red color, It is very dense and the color is more stable than other bright red exotic woods.
