WOOD BLANK, BLOODWOOD (2x2x12) SPINDLE
Common Names: Bloodwood, Satine
Scientific Name: Brosimum rubescens (syn. B. paraense)
Region of Origian: Tropical South America
Janka Hardness Rating: 2,900 lb
Workability: Bloodwood is exceptionally dense and has a noticeable blunting effect on tools. The wood tends to be brittle and can split easily while being worked. Those determined enough to bear with Bloodwood’s challenges to the finishing stage are rewarded with an extraordinary and lustrous red surface.
Color/Appearance: The heartwood is a bright, vivid red. Over time with exposure to light, the color deepens to a darker brownish red. Applying a thick protective finish and keeping the wood out of direct sunlight can help reduce this color shift. The well-defined sapwood is a pale yellowish color, but it’s seldom seen or included in imported lumber, given the typically large trunk diameters.
Odor: Bloodwood has a mild scent similar to pipe tobacco while being worked.
Toxicity: Bloodwood has been shown to cause allergic sensitivity. NOVA always recommended to wear a dust mask or respirator when sanding and finishing with chemicals.
