Bocote is a great wood to...

Mills S from Columbia, SC Posted January 2, 2011
Bocote is a great wood to turn, and although it is a hardwood- in my opinion it is a very soft one. I have always been pleased with the Bocote I order from Rockler and have done so numerous times. Frankly, I think their supply of Bocote usually looks much better than other suppliers I have tried. Typically their price for it is also lower.

I don't actually use these blanks...

Marshall W. S from San Diego, CA Posted June 27, 2009
I don't actually use these blanks for turning, I use them to hand carve one off handles for my files and knives, and also for letter openers and key chains for gifts. I also keep pieces on hand for making trim pieces for boxes of all nature. I too find it difficult to drill, but my carving knives and chisels seem to maintain a good edge throughout each piece with only need for stropping between pieces.

I was very surprised by Bocote....

Caleb S from Arcata, CA Posted October 10, 2008
I was very surprised by Bocote. The grain pattern is awesome. Easy to cut, no nicks just a really good quality wood that's fun to work with.
