Chloroxylon swietenia originates in the Celebes islands. In this yellowish-green colored species, figured logs are the rule but can be quite costly as they are usually cut into veneer. Uses for this fine timber include entire suites, furniture, brush backs, mirror backs, marine uses and many other projects. Interestingly, a large bridge with a single arch of 200' was also made from Ceylon Satinwood. The burning of the wood produces a fragrant, restful aroma that can induce a slumber in many and will kill Canaries. Today, Ceylon satinwood is a rare wood that is used for period reproduction furniture and is priced dearly, especially for figured stock. Sizes listed have taken into account any end/edge checks that may be present. May not be perfectly flat due to the nature of figured veneer. The sheet is sliced at 1/32" thick but due to shrinkage, the sheets will be thinner than listed. EACH SHEET SOLD SEPARATELY: 1 SHEET INCLUDED
