While the term “boxwood” has become quite convoluted over time, this species — Buxus macowanii — is considered a close cousin to ‘the original boxwood.’ (Buxus sempervirens). It’s pale, creamy yellowish hues make this quite popular with wood turners and, especially, carvers, as Boxwood is renowned for its capacity to hold crisp, fine details and it has a smooth, very fine texture.

—————————————————

Sustainability: Not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Common Uses: Carvings, chess pieces, small musical instruments (flutes, recorders, woodwinds, etc.), rulers, handles, turned objects, and other small specialty items.

Comments: Trees rarely make it much passed 20 feet in height; trunk diameters max out at only 6 inches in diameter. Not surprisingly, this limits its supply to primarily small, craft-sized pieces. The very small logs (if you can even call them that) its trees produce are often cracked, from its tough, dense nature. Beware of other species, similar in color and density, being sold as boxwood.
