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. 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.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.

    Buy wood in person

    I bought two bloodwood online, and waited a week for it, when they came in they where both bowed, cupped and twisted. Woodcraft did send me two replacement, but they where cupped as well.

    [...] excellent products

    My opinions for this specific wood species also apply to the other species that I purchased on this order, and no sense in duplicating this.[...]

    I like working with Woodcraft.

    I use about 10 species of your wood strips, and generally find them excellent. Problems I have are not with you, but characteristics of the wood. In cedar, I like all "cedar color" without white streaks on either side. On maple, I like all white, and no dark ares on either side. On walnut, I like "black" walnut and not "light" walnut color. All other species are pretty much OK. I am not complaining, but you asked!!!! I had responded to one of the these surveys in regard to another specie, and do not feel it to be necessary to respond to the other three or four wood species , which would be a duplicate of this one.
