Red Palm (Cocos nucifera) or Coconut Palm is an exotic wood that comes from the outer hardened area of a type of palm tree that is found in Australia and Southeast Asia. Reddish brown fibers are embedded in a lighter tan or light brown colored body. Red Palm has a medium to fine texture with straight grain. While the wood is called black or red, it actually has black or red flecks in a streaked pattern on a light or deep tan background. The distinctive end grain has an extremely interesting speckled appearance. This wood is hard and heavy and the bundles can be quite stringy, so extremely sharp tools are required. Common uses include walking sticks, knife and tool handles, carvings, furniture and turned objects.

Features:

  • Wood is hard, dense and extremely durable but not heavy
  • Despite being somewhat difficult to work with, makes for phenomenal-looking finished products
  • Tends to absorb larger quantities of finish, so care must be taken during finishing; a sanding sealer is recommended
  • Native to Southeast Asia

Specifications:

  • Thickness: 3/8"
  • Width: 1-1/2"
  • Length: 5"

What's Included:

  • Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
