B/S Cocobolo Rosewood, uke soprano

$83.36

Dalbergia retusa

Cocobolo Rosewood grows in southern Mexico and Central America. It's a beautiful wood, which when freshly cut shows bright yellow and orange-red colors. Over time it mellows to a rich brown-red color with black streaks. It is probably as close to Brazilian Rosewood in beauty and tonal qualities as any wood. These visual and tonal features make Cocobolo a premium choice for many builders.

If you have elected to have us join your back, you may also wish to have us profile it. We will profile your back to the shape you choose leaving approximately 1/4 inch of extra material beyond the outline. This excess material can be removed later, once your box is complete, using a router with a flush trim bit or by other appropriate means. Note the concert and tenor profiling cannot be used with soprano sized ukulele sets.

Product Description

Cocobolo is heavier than most other Rosewoods we offer, which may contribute to its strong tone. Because it is usually oily it can sometimes be difficult to glue. Wipe the gluing surface with acetone and glue up as soon as the acetone has evaporated (usually a minute or two). Cocobolo also has excellent machining properties and can be worked well with a scraper, which will help keep dust down.

CAUTION! Since some people have allergies to this wood it is recommended that you wear a mask or respirator when sanding.
