Be very careful -- that might be on a restricted list, you could find yourself in trouble with the authorities the same way the Gibson guitar company did recently over imported wood.

Just wondering - would you be in any trouble if you came across it as the OP did? What if it had been in the country prior to the restriction? And how would the authorities even be able to tell?

If it is, it's available for sale on the internet.

I didn't mean to freak you out -- just advising caution.

First, I don't know if it is or isn't under restrictions; second, even if it is restricted, if there's some kind of "provenance" (ie a sales tag showing where -- & even better when -- it was purchased) it should be fine.

Just do a little background research before posting on the internet ...

Why spook the man without reason? As far as I can tell Pernambuco is not on the restriction list, facts can be found here.

As you said - do a little background research before posting on the internet ...

Okay, sometimes you have to slap your own face. Did some more research and found out that Pernambuco is also known as Brazilwood. (Caesalpinia echinata) That is infact on the list with CITES status Appendix II. This appendix contains species that are at risk in the wild, but not necessarily threatened with extinction. Species in this appendix are closely regulated, but are typically not as restricted as Appendix I.

Geeezzz! You have the wood and I say turn it !! Unless of course the dust is toxic when you turn it. I say too much worry about nothing.Especially if you are turning it for yourself. Is the "Wood Police" going to start knocking on your door after you put the finish on it? Nope !!

Well, people are getting busted for a lot less than wood. I'd like to have 5 minutes alone, with the writer of all these retarded laws.
These stupid laws are only written for making our owners, richer. I say, turn it and be proud of it.

Harrison, at your service!

i can take your point about posting things but hay thought this would be a great place to find out about this rear wood you can read so much about it and get confused with some of the bs. i love wood and love turning there is nothing better than finding a lovely peice of wood and makeing some thing from it. if you can put your self in my shoes your sorting throw some wood that has a name on it you have never seen or heard of at first it looks like most other oxedized wood brown and dull then you cut into it and revile the fantasic colouring would ent you get excited hence the origanal posting

A couple of months ago (before I knew about the Gibson case and that some woods are on a restricted or regulated list) I would've been right there with you.

Since I read about the CITES restrictions and stuff, I'm going to check out what I've got doesn't break any laws before posting online about it.

Enjoy your surprise find!

Pernambuko/pernambuco ...I don`t know how to spell it. Anyway...I know a top notch bow maker,as in Violin Bow. This is his favored choice wood, in reserve for the TOP-OF-THE-LINE BOW! This wood may well be prohibited in the wrong hands! Or any hands...I`m not sure. Rick

Never... I mean always... never mind Rick

I just looked up a list of "restricted and endangered wood species"

I believe it's just exportation of the wood on an industrial scale. Because I've worked with Lignum Vitae, Brazilian Rosewood, and Honduran Rosewood.

You should be fine, if no one has came knocking on my door about where I get my wood for my pens. You should be fine. Even if your selling the product online.

Also, the Lignum Vitae I used about four years ago. My then high school wood shop instructor had some in his wood locker that he let me use, he told me he got it from one of his Shriner buddies who also gave him acacia koa, and some beautiful curly grained black walnut.

Actually he also gave me the Brazilian Rosewood.. Which I turned about 4 months ago into pens.

I'm 95% sure your okay and if your not than I think everyone else has something to worry about
