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
  • 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.

    Ordered this to use for a segmented turning, alas the spindle was probably about 85% sapwood which totally defeated the purpose it was intended.

    Comments about Redheart 1.5" x 1.5" x 12" :

    Got a few pieces of exotic woods to learn turning and shaping. This came clean, dressed, straight and true. Couldn't ask for better! All of the wood stock I've purchased from woodcraft has been of the same 'high-quality'. Allows me to experiment a little with various woods usually not readily available at 'Big Box Stores'. Thanks
