Why Choose Bloodwood?

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.

What Size Is This?
Thickness 1.5"

Review by  Anonymous 
I’m pleased with what I received. Overall true to size. One stick was undersize by 5/16 on one side and one with a 1” crack on the end. I’m not complaining, just pointing out what I found. I’ll be ordering from you again soon.
