Cocobolo is an exotic wood native to Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica, and
Nicaragua, and is favored for custom pool cues, fine furniture and
cabinetry, inlays, and musical instruments. The wood is very durable and
strong, with a fine texture. It is extremely beautiful, ranging in
color from dark red to reddish brown, with an irregular grain pattern.
Cocobolo has fantastic working characteristics, making it a favorite for
turning and carving, and finishes very smoothly.
