Testimonials

“I'm doing some wood binding today, and I pulled out a few pieces of curly maple I've had for a while that I bought from you. It never ceases to amaze me how LMI, above all my other suppliers, just consistently gives me materials that never fail to surpass my expectations. No matter what any picture on your site looks like, whatever I get is always better. Really appreciate it. I know that you supply many other people far beyond my volume and talent, but I am definitely a customer for life!"

South East Asian Rosewood

Dalbergia Bariensis and/or Dalbergia Cochinensis

Few woods compare with Brazilian Rosewood as nicely as this one and it's superb density has led many to claim that it is superior. Our sets exhibit an extremely lively, sonorous tap tone. The color ranges from a warm brick-red (reminiscent of Honduran Rosewood) to an attractive rust-brown color. Less porous than most Rosewoods, it finishes nicely and is not difficult to bend for such a dense wood. We don't expect to be able to obtain this wood in the future as there is little legal wood available. As these sets consist of the two species above mixed and matched, we are unable to export it since cochinensis is CITES II listed.
