Figured Satinwood (Lagerstoemia spp.) heartwood is cream-tan in color with an unbelievable grain pattern ranging from curly to fiddleback. Grain is usually straight, though some pieces have wavy or interlocked grain; texture is moderately coarse and uneven; good natural luster. Generally easy to work, producing good results, though pieces with curly grain (as with any species of figured wood) will be inevitably more difficult to plane and machine without tearout. Turns, glues and finishes well. Common uses include furniture, turned objects and other small specialty items such as knife scale.

  • 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.
