East Indian Rosewood Wood Veneer

East Indian Rosewood VeneerIf you're talking about rare woods, you have to mention East Indian rosewood. The lumber trade from wild harvested rosewood ceased nearly a hundred years ago. See this page for details. It is also a very slow growing tree that can be primarily found in the rain forest areas of India. Some repairable end splits and small checks should be expected as this is a somewhat fragile veneer.

  Blackwood, Bombay blackwood, Roseta rosewood, Black rosewood
Scientific Name:
  Dalbergia latifolia, Amerimnon latifolium
  Dark brown, purple, and black
  East India, South Asia, Sri Lanka
  Primarily hard
  Coarse texture with interlocked grain
  Readily accepts stains and finishes
Restrictions:   This species is regulated by CITES and due to regulations set forth by the United States Department of Fish and Wildlife, we can not ship this veneer outside of the USA.

Tip from Joe

I've found that iPhones and iPads display reasonably accurate colors of our veneer photos.
Rendering variations on some computer monitors can cause our pictures to appear different from the actual veneer.
