Despite concerns about incorrectly or falsely identified woods, sustainability, toxicity, expense, and other issues, rosewoods are among the most pleasant woods to work with, especially because they can produce stunningly attractive results in created objects. Some care and special considerations are sometimes required, as noted in this article, but they are well worth the trouble and I highly recommend the rosewoods as well worth the expense and effort.
