Bloodwood is exceptionally hard, durable, and a rich blood-red color. A superbly beautiful wood in person. Bloodwood often holds tension in the wood making it prone to twist and warp so it's best used in small pieces and as an accent.
Common Names: Bloodwood, Satine, Satinwood, Pau rainha, Brosimum paraense.
Origin: South America.
Color: Bright vivid red, sometimes with yellow streaks. Color darkens and deepens with age and once a finish is applied.
General Workability: Very hard, pronounced blunting effect on cutters. Sometimes problematic to glue due to natural oils present in the wood. Bloodwood is a bit brittle and can split or crack if not pre-drilled when nailing or screwing. But finishes with a wonderful lustrous red surface. Good for woodturning.
