Product Information:

(Piratinera Guianensis) Snakewood can be challenging to work, but it turns exceptionally well. When polished, it is one of the most beautiful species of hardwood. The heartwood is a dark red or reddish brown with conspicuous, irregular black speckles or stripes resembling skins of certain snakes. Grain is typically straight. South America.

  • Snakewood has a very tight exotic figure
  • The jagged black blotches do resemble the skin of a snake
  • The background is quite orange, with a very tight grain
  • A moderate amount of black, irregularly shaped "leopard" spots
  • Tight grain of the wood makes finishing relatively easy

    Comments about Snakewood Pen Blank 1-pc :

    I turned this for an atlas pen kit. I was told ahead of time that this can be a difficult wood to work, so I made sure to take my time and be careful. The only issue I had was in drilling it. It got *really hot. In hindsight, I did rush the drilling, so it was my fault. My advice would be: Take your time drilling and working this wood. If it gets hot after drilling, let it rest before gluing the tubes in. That being said, it is well worth the time.

    Comments about Snakewood Pen Blank 1-pc :

    Thought I was getting 1 set (shown in internet pic.) vs. 1 piece when received in mail. Very misleading. Bought for 12 yr. old son, woodshop project. If I'd known it was only 1 piece I would have driven to local shop about 15 miles away. I thought ordering online would be quicker. Wrong!!! I would not have paid [$] for 1 piece of wood.
