Koa E to K

Koa is now a rare wood. Any pieces here that are figured would cost us more to replace then the prices for the items. Prices have risen so quickly that we don't plan to buy koa again any time soon.

Madagascar Ebony 71-79

Pieces are shown bare wood, partially sanded in the pictures below. This is what other vendors don't show you. Madagascar Ebony, Diospyros perreiri, is considered to be the one of best types of ebony in existence. The grain is incredibly fine, and sanding is a dream. Specific gravity well over 1.0. and weighs about 67 pounds a cubic foot dried. All are dried with a moisture level between 9 and 11% By far the best type of ebony you can buy, but it is rarely seen on the market at all anymore and I have never seen it sold like this where the buyer can see the bare wood and real color before buying.

Masur Birch 22-34

If a piece shows two figure grades ie: 3A/4A it means that it is in between those grades and the first grade listed is closer to correct. Masur Birch is a highly desired patterned wood from Finland and Belarus mostly. Recent research (2017) has reversed the previous belief that these patterns are caused by beetle attack. Studies have shown that the trees that have these patterns are genetically different from those that don't have patterns. This is a process of natural growth in the tree rather then a response to insect attack. The quality of patterns in these pieces is far above average and required very selective cutting techniques to get this kind of appearance. Notes: There may be a long-term problem getting more, the source country Belarus is in a political crisis.

Pernambuco 1 to 14

These are Genuine Pernambuco. These are all unusual pieces that have other color wood and also spalted areas in some cases. We have glued most of them with superglue and the spalted areas have been heavily glued to harden them if necessary. Normally just the orange part of the wood is sold, but we thought these were interesting. The cost is only for the orange part, the other parts of the wood are basically included "free".

Pernambuco 1-8

Real pernambuco is basically gone from the market for many years, it is uncommon to see a piece for sale. Note this is not the same thing as chakte viga, which we also sell. It is not longer clear if the two wood types are closely related, but pernambuco is the rare one which is hard to get. You can darken the color by putting in direct sunlight and then remove once it is almost as dark as you want. Sometimes this can take only 3 hours, so watch the piece while "tanning" it. Some pernambuco that is darker has very little response to sunlight.

Pernambuco A to H

This is genuine Pernambuco. Pernambuco was last imported around the year 2000. There is another orange wood, Chakte Viga (we sell this too) which is somewhat similar to Pernambuco. Some vendors call Chakte Viga by the name Pernambuco. The ones we are selling here are the original ones called Pernambuco, which is also known as Brazilwood. (That is where Brazil got its name by the way). Used by makers of violin bows for centuries, this wood has become rare and heavily protected in the wild. It is not allowed to be exported from Brazil for about 24 years or so. The trees which are left are being protected by various groups including some associated with the violin industry.

Peroba Rosa 25-37

Peroba rosa, especially in dried pieces is rarely seen for sale. It is one of my favorite woods, ultra fine grain, finishes like a dream, works great on the lathe, takes detail, kind of like a hidden treasure most people in the wood world have passed over.
