Figured Katalox

Swartzia cubensis

This is a large tree 2-4' diameter, by up to 120' tall from Mexico & Central America. The wood is very dense and fairly fine-grained. Because of its hardness it can be difficult to work but it takes a fine polish. Its dark color leads some to call it Mexican Ebano and very dark pieces can be used as a substitute for true black Ebony, especially in laminations and inlays. Straight-grained wood can be used for musical instrument fingerboards and bridge blanks.

Camphor Burl

Cinnamomum sp.

This rare burl is from S.E. Asia and is seldom seen on the world market. It is fine-grained and varies in color from a light reddish-brown to almost scarlet. These are "good with the bad" boards because we have left them as they came off our re-saw, i.e. we have not end-trimmed them or milled out any defects. The plus is that these are almost half the regular price. Green to partially air-dried.
