DETAILS
Also known as Ciricote, this rare species is only found in a small portion of Central America on the Caribbean coast.   Beautiful spider-webbing is present with amazing  patterns.  The variegated stripes produce valleys, plateaus, & mountains that make a stunning landscape figure.  Our Ziricote is imported in log form so that we can control the conversion of the wood in our sawmill.   Trees are commonly 15-20″ in diameter with heights of 45-75′. The tree produces an edible fruit and beautiful orange yellow flowers.  The wood is prized locally and is used for carvings, furniture, and handles for knives. It turns to an extremely high glass-like polish.

This wood is kiln dried, surfaced on two sides and sealed on the ends. Some blanks will have occasional very faint hairline checks in black streaks or a minor end check that should be easy to work with or around. These are usually near or on the sapwood; they are very small and minor. This wood is exceptionally high quality A grade material.    This is the same material that we use to cut instrument sets that are sold to larger instrument companies.  Cut your own sets and save up to 50%! It is getting much harder to obtain this wood so stock up and take advantage of the wonderful pricing!

Great for quarter sawn bridge blanks.
