Bocote, like its close relative ziricote, is a very beautiful wood with a unique appearance. The heartwood is an attractive yellowish-brown overlain with distinctive black lines giving the wood an active and striking figure. Subtle birdseye figures can appear and when quarter cut, bright ray flakes shimmer on the surface. Botanical considerations aside, appearance and workability are the properties desired by craftspeople.
Harvesting occurs mostly in mexico and other countries of central america. Some of the logging is done selectively with mules, which helps maintain a sustainable resource by avoiding clear-cutting.A piece is of wood selected from seasoned stock for its grain and colour. Each piece is carefully cut to show the best grain. The wood is turned on the lathe to the desired design then sanded through 5 different grits of sandpaper. It is then rubbed with a beeswax mix before rounding off with a friction polish to provide a durable finish.
