Cocobolo Bottle Stopper - Handcrafted
Click to enlarge image(s)

 Handmade by Ken H. in his Florida shop from  Cocobolo, a hardwood  from Central America. Trees are fair-sized, reported to reach 60 to 80 feet in height.

Cocobolo is quite dense, and even a large block of the cut wood will produce a clear musical tone if struck. Guitar makers and musicians prize it as the wood of choice for electric guitar bodies. One of the true tropical rosewoods, Cocobolo is probably the most beautiful exotic wood worldwide. Cocobolo is fine textured and oily in look and feel. The wood has excellent working characteristics and the natural oils give the wood a natural luster. It is twice the weight of Walnut, and is so dense it does not absorb water (it will not float!). Because of its scarcity and high value, it is used for its rare beauty rather than for its extreme strength or durability.

Stopper Length is 5” and about 1 3/8” diameter. Wood Portion is 2 3/8”.
