Cocobolo is a tropical hardwood of Central American trees. The heartwood of these trees is used to make musical instruments such as oboes. The heartwood is often orange or reddish brown with darker irregular markings. This warm and rich palette of color makes Cocobolo wood the desired wood to hold and handle. The color will darken after it is cut and the wood ages beautifully over time. Cocobolo wood is very hard, dense and fine textured making it a favorite wood for artists.
