woodworking characteristicsBloodwood Characteristics

Extraordinarily hard, dense, and tight grained. Bloodwood often holds a lot of tension in the wood, making it unstable and prone to twist or cup. It's best used in small pieces. However, woodworkers like the way it finishes and polishes, and the vivid color is always eye catching.

color of BloodwoodColor Range

Rich strawberry red to light pink or yellowish red; sometimes with golden yellow stripes.
