I just purchased a set of rosewood furniture. It is handmade solid wood bedroom and dining room set. It is very nice high end furniture. One of the bed posts and one of the doors in china cabinet have a seam separating. Any ideas on the best way to repair this? Thanks.

RE: repair solid rosewood furniture

Rosewood and other similiar species is grown/harvested/machined and built into furniture in the tropics. Thus its not been climatized to the drier and cooler areas in the northern hemisphere. The results is shrinking or checking of this wood, and I would venture to say this is whats going on with your bedroom set. Most likely it will continue in other areas, if you run the AC or heat, with humidity levels below 45%.
You can use epoxy wood fillers that matches close to the color finish.

I doubt it is true Rosewood, as it would most likely cost in the 10's of thousands of dollars. I would go back to the store you bought it, and ask for assistance.
