Bloodwood Bloodwood: (Brosimum paraense )

Bloodwood is an extemely straight grained, fine dense wood that finishes to a deep rose colour with an occasional yellow streak in the more dramatic pieces.

It is somewhat difficult to cut and plane and is hard on your chisels, and MUST be pre-drilled. It takes time to create a quality finish but polishes beautifully if you work your way up the grit sizes. The beautiful rich, rose coloured luster is well worth the effort.

movingui Movingui: (Distemonanthus benthamianus )

Movingui is a decorative yellow wood, used in projects from boxes to intarsia, common as a cheaper, wider and more available species than the more traditional pau amarello or yellowheart. Colour can be banded between bright yellow to pale straw colour to beige heartwood.

It is not as tight of a grain as yellowheart, has open pores and a coarser grain, that make it slightly more work to get that satin finish, but the combination of the figure and the colour variation makes for a more interesting visual appearance.

3/4" x 6" x 22.75" approx. (1 piece, dressed)
(yellow wood, replacement for yellowheart, but has more grain pattern in the wood)
