Bocote has a yellowish brown body with dramatic dark brown to almost black stripes. Color tends to darken with age. Also, the grain patterning can be quite striking, particularly on flatsawn areas. It’s not uncommon to see many “eyes” and other figuring in bocote; though unlike knots, they do not seem to present any special challenges in machining.
Although bocote has a fairly high amount of natural oils present, gluing is usually problem-free. Bocote also turns and finishes well.
