Cocobola, pupleheart, 1/4 sawn white oak and African padauk. First exotic project, first box project,finished with teak oil. The purpleheart was hard to manipulate, the padauk was more workable, sometimes splintering when working with smaller peices. Cocobola is a wonderful wood, equiped with its own natural oils. I would recomend an oil finish for cocobola, surface finishes may not adhere to the oily texture of wood.
"I live in NJ, and wish there was a physical store near where I live. My experience with rockler.com is second to none. Not only are your products first rate, but customer service/product support is exceptional. I've called several times, and never received someone on the other end of the phone who was anything but extremely helpful, patient, and friendly. The biggest compliment I can give is that I TRUST Rockler for all my woodworking needs. The only other store I can say that about is LL Bean. My wood working friends in western NJ love Rockler. Keep on keepin' on - and get a store here in Jersey!!" -
