Product Information:

Hormigo negro (platymiscium dimorphandrum) is found in Central America. Hormigo negro has a dense, hard, reddish-brown heartwood with dark stripes. This species machines well with sharp tools and polishes to a high gloss. In Central America, Hormigo is known as “woods that sing” and has traditionally been used in the manufacturing of marimbas. Larger blocks are +- 1/4" of size listed, smaller blocks +- 1/8". Spindle stock (1-1/2" - 2") dimensions are +-1/8". Grain runs with the longest dimension.

  • Reddish-brown with dark stripes
  • Machines well
  • Polishes to a high gloss
  • Hormigo negro, 1.5"x 1.5" x 12"

  • 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 +/- ¼" of size listed.

    Plywood. Sizes are nominal. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.
