The bright red background of Redheart (Erythroxylon mexicanum) is host to a number of very interesting streaks and closed knots. It is smooth and tight grained, and sands to a nice workable surface. Redheart does not tear out when planed, and is nice for scroll sawing. In many ways it is similar to Bloodwood in character and color without the possibility of allergic reaction from the dust. Common uses for Redheart include turned objects, inlays, veneer, fine furniture, and small specialty wood items.

Redheart

Redheart really lives up to its name. Its scarlet heartwood resembles something Walt Disney would have dreamed up.

    A very nice wood to work with. Great appearance.

    I'm a novice turner using a home-made lathe and I was looking for interesting woods that turned well. This choice did not disappoint. The surface is very smooth off the table saw and turning is almost as easy as cherry. The price seems good. I've not finished anything yet, but I'm expecting it to look spectacular.

    Easy to turn, less chip out on a wood lathe, nice color.

    Disappointed

    Ordered this to use for a segmented turning, alas the spindle was probably about 85% sapwood which totally defeated the purpose it was intended.

    Great!

    Got a few pieces of exotic woods to learn turning and shaping. This came clean, dressed, straight and true. Couldn't ask for better! All of the wood stock I've purchased from woodcraft has been of the same 'high-quality'. Allows me to experiment a little with various woods usually not readily available at 'Big Box Stores'. Thanks
