Beautiful Bloodwood "Brosimum rubescens"

The Bloodwood (AKA Satine) of the past was a deep, dark gorgeous vibrant red color, it was truly a unique looking wood.

That variant of Bloodwood has been gone for 12+ years for the most part though, today Bloodwood is still a red colored wood, but it shows some variance from light red to dark red. The color can also darken over time with exposure to direct sunlight.IMG 0486 4

Bloodwood is very dense and has a straight, or slightly interlocked grain. It has a tendency to show some surfacing checking during drying, so we are very careful during the drying process. However, most minor surface checking will surface right out later on.

Since Bloodwood is so dense, care must be used when working with it. However, for those who choose to go with Bloodwood the extra effort pays off with a beautiful red finish that is used for flooring, inlays, furniture, cabinets, carvings, musical instruments and for other purposes as well.

We currently carry 4/4” Bloodwood in stock, call us now! 8,500 bft of this stock just came out of our kilns.
