Details

(Piratinera Guianensis) Snakewood can be challenging to work, but it turns exceptionally well. When polished, it is one of the most beautiful species of hardwood. The heartwood is a dark red or reddish brown with conspicuous, irregular black speckles or stripes resembling skins of certain snakes. Grain is typically straight. South America.
  • Snakewood has a very tight exotic figure
  • The jagged black blotches do resemble the skin of a snake
  • The background is quite orange, with a very tight grain
  • A moderate amount of black, irregularly shaped "leopard" spots
  • Tight grain of the wood makes finishing relatively easy
