Small vase turned from "Mexican Rosewood" (Bocote)
October 26, 2023
This small vase has been turned from “Mexican Rosewood” [Bocote; Cordia alliodora], tropical American hardwood with a medium coarse, but very dramatic grain pattern. It can also be spectacularly colorful. The wood is dense and heavy, as are many tropical American woods. It takes a very fine finish.
