Cocobolo milling

its not every day you get the opportunity to mill something different, let alone not native to Ontario, but all the way from Nicaragua

thanks to Wikipedia for the following information about cocobolo

Cocobolo is a tropical hardwood of Central American trees[1] belonging to the genus Dalbergia. Only the heartwood is used; it is typically orange or reddish-brown, often with darker irregular traces weaving through the wood. The sapwood (not often used) is a creamy yellow, with a sharp boundary with the heartwood. The heartwood changes color after being cut.

The heartwood is dense; some cocobolo has a specific gravity of over 1.0, and will sink in water.

Because it stands up well to repeated handling and exposure to water, a common use is in gun grips and knife handles. It is very hard, fine textured, and dense, but is easily machined. The abundance of natural oils, however, causes the wood to clog abrasives and fine-toothed saw blades, like other hard, dense tropical woods. Due to its density and hardness, even a large block of the cut wood will produce a clear musical tone if struck. It is used to make musical instruments, such as oboes and clarinets, for its “warm, rich palette”.[2] Cocobolo can be polished to a lustrous, glassy finish

 

Please stay tuned for the cutter head transfer as we move it over to the 48″ wide mill to slice these “big leaf maple” burls

 

we offer custom milling of all kinds of woods to fit your next project needs
