January 2020 | Cocobolo
January 2020 Wood of the Month | We are kicking off the New Year with one gorgeous wood veneer: Cocobolo (sometimes called Nicaragua Rosewood). Every log has its own unique color palette. The heartwood colors can range from shades of brown with black or purple streaks to yellow, orange or deep red. The sapwood is a very light yellow in comparison to the rich heartwood.
A true Rosewood: Cocobolo is dense, hard and durable. It stains and finishes beautifully and easily. It also has a high oil content, a common characteristic of Rosewood.
Uses: Fine furniture, both acoustic and architectural paneling, and in luxury aircraft and yachts. Most notably, its acoustic properties make it a prime choice for musical instruments, especially guitars.
