Spalted Tamarind

Spalted Tamarind

Tamarindus indica has been planted throughout many countries in the world for its fruit which is popular in jams, juices, candies and drinks. Growing to a height of 60 ft. with trunk diameters of up to 2 ft. this hardwood has a small area of heartwood that is bold red with contrasting creamy white sapwood. Our spalted stock is hand selected for only the finest color & figure! Pin and bug holes are common. All spalted areas have the potential of being soft. We recommend CA glue to stabilize these sections. Tamarind is originally from Africa but has been planted Worldwide. Our stock was grown in Laos. This species originates from a Tamarind fruit. Each piece has its own unique color contrast. The color can vary and the spalt lines can range from red to black. The spalting is heavier in some pieces than others, but can be hardened with CA glue if soft. It is kiln dried and ready to use.
