Rating:
96% of 100
Bocote showcases bold patterning and dramatic stripes. Its golden brown backdrop is interspersed with deep chocolate veins and it has a fine texture that polishes beautifully. Despite its distinctive grain pattern, Bocote is delightfully easy to turn. These turning blanks are available in an assortment of sizes for bowls, platters, carvings, bottle stoppers, chess pieces, tool handles, table legs, spindles, finials, candlesticks and whatever else your imagination can conjure up!

Due to high demand and limited supply, we cannot always guarantee that this item will be in stock.

  • Native to Central America and the West Indies.
  • Color: Golden brown heartwood with dark stripes; sapwood is pale.
  • Grain: Fairly straight.
  • Very hard and heavy.
  • Extremely resistant to rot and insect damage.
