Product Information:

Bloodwood (brosimum paraense) or "cardinal wood" as it is commonly referred to, is a medium to hard wood with red to crimson color and tight straight interlocking grain. Excellent for turning. Grown in South America. A bright, vivid red. Color can darken to a darker brownish red over time with exposure to light and air. Applying a thick protective finish, and keeping the wood out of direct sunlight can help minimize this color shift. It's no wonder that Bloodwood has grown so popular as an imported wood species, as it is exceptionally hard, durable, strong, and beautiful. It is used for both trim and accents, as well as larger structural elements in furniture. This micro-thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. 100 percent clear and sanded on both sides. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" grain runs with the longest dimension.

    Comments about Bloodwood/Satine 1/8" x 3" x 24" :

    Building a cigar box guitar ultimately led me to the fretboard, and after a long deliberation, I landed on Bloodwood because it matched an indigenous painting on this particular box. It's a fabulous wood, and dwarfs red heartwood for true red. I do not regret this choice!
