Bocote is a particularly high-grain wood that ages from bright yellowish-tan with dark streaks to very dark tan with dark streaks. Because the veneer surface is totally exposed to the air, it always has the same appearance as aged lumber. If you cut into (or re-surface) aged bocote lumber, you'll get fresh bright color, but the veneer is so thin it ages all the way through and you can't get it bright again. But while you won't find the veneer in bright colors, it does have the attractive grain of bocote lumber and the color is stable.
