Spalted Jobillo
Jobillo, Astronium spp., is a medium to large South American tropical tree with heights of 100-125 ft. and widths ranging from 2-4 ft. in diameter. The wood has a medium density with a specific gravity that ranges from .55 to .60. Colors are a range from white to off white with defined and marbled spalt lines that will bring a unique and beautiful touch to your woodworking projects. Wood grain is typically interlocked with some ribbon figure possible in quarter sawn or nearly quarter sawn boards. Common uses include furniture, carved objects, knife handles, jewelry boxes, humidors, or electric guitar tops. No matter the crafting project you have in mind, Jobillo is a wonderful choice!
