Probably the best substitute for European boxwood being pale yellow brown, very fine textured and wonderful to work.
It has been a staple for inlay work for centuries and is also a favoured wood for the making of traditional archery bows.
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.
