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