Yellowheart (Euxylophora paraensis or common name Pau Amarello) grows on Brazil's Eastern coastline from the equator South to Rio. The color in the heartwood is a pronounced vivid yellow with creamy white sapwood. There is striping if one looks closely at the grain between the rings. It is also called Brazilian Satinwood for the iridescent ribbon figure that is in quarter sawn stock.
Our stock has air dried for 8-12 months and is completely wax sealed. It is considered freshly cut and is ideal for twice turning. It works and glues well, taking a high polish since the wood is dense and durable. These blanks are 95% clear or better! May develop a small check as it dries on edge or side grain that will easily turn away.
