We imported this stock in squared logs several years ago. We put one log through the saw and found the most beautiful dense, dark wood but the saw had such a tough time getting through it we did what any sensible person would do and hid the rest of the stock beneath several tons of other stuff.
To cut a long story short we recently found the courage to put it through the saw and have some fantastic wood available.
From 2nd January 2017 if you wish to export articles that are partly or fully made from newly listed species of Rosewood, Padauk and Bubinga then the export will need to be accompanied by a CITES re-export permit. It is possible that the importer/customer of the article may need to apply for a CITES import permit from their own authorities and this should be investigated before the export happens.
