From the Harry Hill book of silly things to do with nice wood we can offer Thai rosewood reclaimed from a Conservatory built in Oxfordshire in 1992.
Typically used in carved antique Chinese furniture, a more appropriate use might be for the restoration of these pieces.
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.
