Snakewood (Piratinera guianensis) has a fine, even texture with heartwood that is a dark red or reddish brown with conspicuous, irregular black speckles or stripes resembling skins of certain snakes. Grain is typically straight. Snakewood can be challenging to work due to its density and hardness, but it turns exceptionally well. When polished, it is one of the most beautiful species of hardwood. Common uses include inlay, veneer, violin bows, tool handles, and other small turned or specialty objects.
