Ziricote has about the closest grain resemblance to Brazilian Rosewood of any lumber although the color is darker and lacking the reds and oranges. It is a superior furniture and musical instrument lumber. With its very fine texture and high density Ziricote will take a satin finish with just sanding. The grain carves beautifully and is used for sculptures. Ziricote is very rare and expensive.
*Superior exotic hardwood
*Extremely fine texture
*Used for acoustic guitars
*Best for smaller projects because of size limitations and weight
