Sonokeling is the same tree as Indian rosewood but differs, presumably because it is plantation grown, in having a broader colour range and being a little less hard and heavy
Sonokeling timber has beautiful colours ranging from black and brown to purple and Olive green with blue undertones. It is kiln dried and ready to turn. Rosewoods generally take an exceptionally high polish and this species is no exception!
The nature of the wood lends an amazing natural polish that is ideal for beginner to expert. After seasoning the wood shrinks little and is very stable in service. Shapes and turns exceptionally on the lathe and a highly polished finish can be achieved.
