Chechen - Metopium brownei
Chechen is an exotic Mexican wood with a wide range of color variation from dark chocolate to light butterscotch colors. Chechen has an irregular grain pattern, and coupled with the color variety it makes fantastic finished pieces. Chechen is also hard and dense, which allows the wood to polish to a high sheen without effort. The sapwood has a tanned yellow appearance. This is a very popular wood for fine furniture!
Chechen is frequently referred to as “Caribbean Rosewood” due to the regal color tone and pattern that this timber provides.
