Caribbean Rosewood Lumber for Sale
Although not a dalbergia or true rosewood, Caribbean Rosewood shares many attributes with members of the rosewood family. It has a tight heavy grain and finishes to a high polish. The lengths and widths of Caribbean Rosewood or Che Chen, as it is also commonly called, are better than the rosewoods. Most of the lumber available is between 6 and 9 feet long and 4 and 10 inches wide. Wood Vendors supplies 4/4 Che Chen Lumber at prices that are a fraction of true rosewoods such as Cocobolo and Honduras Rosewood.
