  • Capabilities

    East Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia latifolia) is a true rosewood and is commonly used as an alternative to the more difficult to obtain Brazilian Rosewood (Dalbergia nigra).  The trees are native to Southern Asia and are exported mainly from India, Indonesia, Java, Napal and other asian locales.  Similar to other rosewoods such as Honduras Rosewood, and Brazililian Rosewood (very rare since cites ban back in the '60s),  East Indian Rosewood is very dense and yields a nice satin finish.
