Bocote
Cordia Elaeagnoides

Often called Mexican Rosewood, this is one of the most spectacularly figured timbers and also one of the easiest to work.

Grading is Standard which is fairly straight grained with some nice figure Figured will have swirls and cathedral figuring and be very nice Highly figured will be mostly filled with swirls eyes and be extremely nice Some sapwood will either have sapwood at the edges or have it in a way that is unusual but nice. Where there is sapwood and figure a mid grade will be given grading is for the best face.
