Re: Favorite woods

Cocobolo is very heavy, dense, and polishes sweet too.
I made a jo out of this stuff for my Sensei & it seems to hold up well . (so far)
Cocobolo is a type of rosewood as well, and has a rich color. Do you know of any drawbacks to this other than being so heavy?
BTW it turns on a woodlathe easier than hickory.
Thanks Lan

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
