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 unique species originates from a Tamarind fruit tree! Each piece of wood has distinctive color contrast & black or red spalt lines which can vary in beauty and intensity from piece to piece. Material is kiln dried, but some pieces may contain very little residual moisture. Pin and bug holes are common. This is beautiful, rustic grade wood with lots of character!
