: What would be the closest Pacific Nortwest equivelant of cocobolo with
: regards to working characteristics. A turner friend that lived originally in
: Socal where cocobolo was readily available was looking for a domestic
: hardwood that might be available in the Bend, Oregon area. Thanks in advance
There isn't one. Cocobolo is a Dalbergia (rosewood), extremely dense, dark
reddish with black and yellow streaks. There's nothing whatsoever in the
Pacific NW that comes close, unless it's imported.
