Leopardwood (Roupala montana) from Central and South America contains a very conspicuous flecking, which brings to mind this wood’s namesake. Wood ranges from medium to dark reddish-brown color with gray to light brown rays that resemble a leopard’s spots. Grain is straight with a fairly coarse texture. Wood is fairly difficult to work due to its high density and tendency to tear-out during planing; however, this wood glues and finishes well.

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. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.
