Griffin Exotic Wood

Brazilian Tulipwood
(dalbergia frutescans or dalbergia decipularis)
A wood nearly impossible to get more than 1 inch thick since about 2014.   Brazil is the only source and has cut off all exports since about that time.
Pieces seen for sale here were acquired before that date.

 Rare and almost impossible to find. Nearly completely gone and not normally seen for sale in the USA anymore (except pen blanks) We do have other pieces of lumber in 1" as well. The pieces here took many hours to cut not including sanding and finishing. The only wood we can get is very rustic, meaning it is very riddled with defects. To make these high quality pieces, we must cut away about an average of 72% of the boards to free these pieces without defects. Notes: pieces 12 and 26 have rounded corners

Notes: dried pieces planed on the two faces. It is very hard to find Brazilian tulipwood for sale, it was last imported about 12 years ago and it is unlikely it will ever be imported again due to multiple restrictions on this genuine rosewood.  When these are gone they cannot be replaced. Boards are normally sold with a pith check that pretty much runs up the entire center of the board. We have cut these boards so that there is no pith check or other defects, by cutting to one side of the central checks. If you want the boards that are a little wider and longer, we do have them, with the standard pith check that they nearly always have---email us for those options.
If your piece is not listed below or you get an out of stock notice in the shopping cart, that piece is sold.
