Bloodwood (Brosimium 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. The 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. Bloodwood is extremely dense, and may have a blunting effect on cutters. It is used for both trim and accents, as well as larger structural elements in furniture. Additional uses may include: case goods, carvings, inlays, guitars, knife handles, and turned objects.

    satisfied with thin stock bloodwood

    I bought this wood to make some decorative containers. It cut and sanded well and looks great with clearcoat finish.

    Attractive

    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!
