Honduras Rosewood

Honduras rosewood (Dalbergia stevensonii) grows in Central America, where, as the name suggests, mainly in Honduras. The tree reaches a height of 50 to 100 feet, with a diameter of about 3 feet. The wood is particularly highly appreciated for use in making musical instruments. It is hard, dense, and very durable. For musical instruments, the clear, powerful sound is of particularly interest. It is used to make xylophones and fingerboards for stringed instruments, for example. It is also used for knife handles, brush sticks, and smaller turning work. The burl wood is used mainly in smaller fine crafts, mainly knife handles or writing instruments, for example. Its high price is due to its relative rarity.
