Details

Bloodwood (brosimum paraense) or "cardinal wood" as it is commonly referred to, is a medium to hard wood with red to crimson color and tight straight interlocking grain. Excellent for turning. Grown in South America. A bright, vivid red. Color can darken to a darker brownish red over time with exposure to light and air. Applying a thick protective finish, and keeping the wood out of direct sunlight can help minimize this color shift. It's no wonder that Bloodwood has grown so popular as an imported wood species, as it is exceptionally hard, durable, strong, and beautiful. It is used for both trim and accents, as well as larger structural elements in furniture. This thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. 100 percent clear and sanded on both sides. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" grain runs with the longest dimension.
Features:
  • From South America
  • Tight, straight, interlocking grain
  • Red to crimson color
  • Durable
  • Strong
Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.
