Details

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.



  • Red to crimson color


  • Tight, straight, interlocking grain

    Bloodwood Blanks 5 pc

    While these are used for making pens as a rule, I ordered them to mix and match a design base for another sort of project. It would be a mistake not to view these are re-arrangable tiles for table tops and such.
