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.
Kiln dried, surfaced on two sides. Small hairline surface checks are common and present unless otherwise specified.
2" hairline check on one face. 1-1/4" hairline end check at one end on the face and another 1" surface check near it. This easily fits a Gibson J200 inside of the end checking area. Rough edge. Minor planer bite.
