“I keep meaning to send an email and let you know that I got the prem. Indian Rosewood and was very pleased. You all at LMII have always given me great reason for trust in doing business with you. You have always treated me well and in a prompt and professional fashion. You have always helped with any problems that I might. have. Your staff is knowledgeable and professional and the materials have been great. You guys run the type of business that makes me look for things I need that I can get from you. If that doesn't work (look for things I might need in the future). Thank you for giving me a place where I can buy my materials with confidence.”

Bubinga is a wood that has been used for years with success. Harder and heavier than either Brazilian or Indian Rosewood, Bubinga is sometimes known as African Rosewood, although it's not a Dalbergia. It has a medium texture with interlocking grain. Bubinga varies in color from pinkish-mauve to golden blondes and oxidizes beautifully to rich darker tones over time. Because of its interlocking grain, it can be like some of the more difficult Mahogany species to bend.
