Product Information:

Erythroxylon mexicanum The bright red background of Redheart is host to a number of very interesting streaks and closed knots. It is smooth and tight grained, and sands to a nice workable surface. Redheart does not tear out when planed, and is nice for scroll sawing. In many ways it is similar to Bloodwood in character and color without the possibility of allergic reaction from the dust. Source Region: Mexico/Central America.


  • Similar to Bloodwood in character and color
  • Wood is typically smooth, with tight grain
  • Sands and polishes well
  • Sometimes fades to a deeper red/red-brown with age


  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ΒΌ" of size listed.

    Comments about Redheart 2" x 2" x 12" :

    On 10-28-2013 I bought these 2x2x12 blanks to make Christmas gifts with, but the wood is obviously still green.....freshly cut. 30% moisture content means several months ahead of me for drying, so this deal was a bust for me. The color is great and the dimensions were spot on, blanks were very well protected/waxed. GREEN LUMBER SHOULD BE CLEARLY SOLD AS SUCH SO BUYERS CAN PLAN ACCORDINGLY!

    Comments about Redheart 2" x 2" x 12" :

    It is a real pleasure to turn with this wood, it cuts smoothly and doesn't fight back when the tools are "less than sharp". That said, I would not say that it's a soft wood. The color is gorgeous! I've put waxes and oils with very satisfying results. Redheart is definately going to be one of my "go to" woods.

    I used this with some zebrawood to make some dogeared boxes, and the redheart glows ruby red!
