Indonesian Hardwood





The same tree as Sonokeling rosewood but having darker and heavier wood due to different growth conditions.

Indian rosewood is historically one of the main rosewoods of commerce and was traded alongside Brazilian rosewood for hundreds of years. Felling is now strictly controlled by the Indian government and logs are sold by auction to a small number of government approved bidders only. Export is also stritctly controlled by the Indian government to reinforce the value and precious nature of this timber so that it will remain available for a long time into the future.

Not a true Rosewood (Dalbegia) but a member of the Bubinga family (but not CITES Listed) and just maybe, the most beautitiful spacers we have.

It works just like Bubinga, slightly hard but crisp and takes abrasives well.

Tulipwood Scales 6438-Sc

Tulipwood Scales

6438-Sc


Price: 18.00 (Including VAT at 20%)

Quantity:

Dimensions: 9 x 125 x 38mm.

Dalbergia variabilis. Tulip is also called: jacaranda, bahia rosewood, pink wood, jacaranda Rosa, and bois de rose. This rosewood is a small tree (shrub) that averages 2-10" in diameter without sapwood. Most billets are 3-5" in diameter as this is a rare species and is only found in small 1" or 2" lumber or veneer and is not plentiful in either. There is a prominent heart defect that prevents many clean boards over 4-5" in width. In fact the average width is only 2-3/8". Weighing about 60 pounds per cubic foot, the wood is dense and takes a very nice polish. Used for fine articles including knife handles, turning, jewelry boxes, and pens. Brazil

As used for the Seven Oaks Knife. See http://www.english-handmade-knives.co.uk/SevenOaksMain.html.

Price: 10.00 (Including VAT at 20%)

Quantity:

Sold in Pairs

Size: 124mm x 40mm x 8mm. Part seasoned.

Botanical name: Bulnesia sarmienti

Origin: Paraguay
Although this wood has been used for generations for the same purposes as the genuine lignum vitaes (timber from the genus guiaicum) it has become a more important choice recently because very little of the Guaiacum lignum vitae is currently being exported.

Greenish brown to brown with a tight and pronounced interlocked grain, very dense, waxy with self lubricating qualities, hard wearing in almost all the contexts in which lignum vitae has traditionally been used and smells wonderful when being worked.
