Rosewoods are perhaps my favorite species of wood. World renowned for their beautiful colors, pleasing scent and on rare occasions, brilliant figure, even unfigured rosewood is highly sought after the world over.
I carry a wide variety of rare rosewoods, including brazilian and mexican Kingwood, cocobolo, and my favorite and rarest of all, Figured Siamese rosewood.
Rosewoods are famously durable and well aging, but especially with figured blocks, i recommend letting the blocks acclimate to your shop. I am based on Los Angeles, and its very possible your shop is in a different climate. I would recommend letting blocks sit somewhere out of direct light for 2-3 weeks before cutting to allow for acclimation and reduce the risk of checks or cracks.
