    Caribbean Rosewood Lumber for Sale

    Although not a dalbergia or true rosewood, Caribbean Rosewood shares many attributes with members of the rosewood family.   It has a tight heavy grain and finishes to a high polish.  The lengths and widths of Caribbean Rosewood or Che Chen, as it is also commonly called, are better than the rosewoods.  Most of the lumber available is between 6 and 9 feet long and 4 and 10 inches wide.  Wood Vendors supplies 4/4 Che Chen Lumber at prices that are a fraction of true rosewoods such as Cocobolo and Honduras Rosewood.
