Product Information:

Tamarindus indica. Spalted Tamarind has a spectacular heartwood with background colors of ivory, yellow and black lines, which gives an unpredictable landscape effect. Much of the wood comes from logs that were found on the forest floor. It turns and finishes well. Due to the nature of the specie, bug and worm holes may be present on some blanks, and no two are alike. Native to Laos.We have collected some of the most highly figured redwood burls and improved on Mother Nature by stabilizing them with an acrylic resin injection. This virtually eliminates the biggest problem with burl turnings: checking and cracking due to expansion or contraction. We recommend taking precautions when working with spalted wood, such as using adequate dust-collection equipment and wearing a personal respirator or mask.
