Cocobolo Veneered Panels & Jointed Veneer
Cocobolo, which is also called Granadillo, Funera, Palo Negro, Nambar, Cocobolo Prieto and Mexican Rosewood, is found in limited abundance in the Pacific regions of Central America and extending from Panama to southwestern Mexico, usually in the drier uplands.
Somewhat variable in colour when freshly sawn, Cocobolo heartwood usually becomes a deep rich orange red with black striping or mottling on exposure.
Cocobolo veneer grain is straight to interlocked and the texture is fine. This wood is oily, with a slightly pungent odour and fragrant when worked and the natural oils give the wood a good polish.
