castillo de aroma wood? - 07-31-2018, 06:40 PM

I am wondering if anyone knows of what wood this is and has information on it, I was told its like bacote? I can't find any information, input would be great

This is the wood, It is being used in a cue I am having made.

You'd be surprised how many woods have made up names or names that people will find out are used by the locals where it is harvested. They think they have something new and exciting but really it's just a common known wood. Not saying yours isn't, just saying.
Better pictures might help a bit but some wood is hard enough to try and figure out what it is when holding it in your hands.

I am not a cuemaker, not even close. To my eye, judging by your photo, it looks like it could be Zircote, or Wenge. These are purely guesses. Good luck with your quest.

Might or might not be true, but actual "name" is just a marketing hussle.

If it can't be found in the wood database, or even any references in an open google search except AZB, then someone made the name up quite recently. Or (no insult intended) possibly you misunderstood what they are saying?

Need a bigger clearer picture to even make any WAG's

No such name for a wood. Ask your cuemaker guy for the Latin name, that should sort things out.
To me it looks alot like Wenge (Millettia Laurentii)

Does that literally translate to Castle of Pleasant Smells? I've been to a LOT of castles. None of them had a pleasing odor.

They told me it was only available in the mountains of Panay, Philippines. Not sure it that's on the up and up. Interesting wood combos they use. This wood, and spalted tamerind. They maple core the tamarind, not sure if they do that
to the castille de aroma.

Possibly Philippine Ebony (diospyros). Commonly called Kamagong for the tree and velvet apple for the fruit.

Good call, that might be it. Locals probably have their own name for it.

Looks a lot like Bocote to me. I am a woodworker, and woodturner, and turn quite a few pens for gifts. While I use a variety of hard woods, Bocote is one of them. Can't say for certain by the picture provided, but looks like Bocote to me. Just for your information, your spelling is wrong, and might be some of the confusion, Bocote is the correct spelling, or at least how it is spelled as sold to woodturners.
