W29422 specs:
4 lbs. 27-1/2″ x 3-9/16″ x 1″

Castello Boxwood, Calycophyllum multiflorum, originates in South American mostly in Paraguay.  Although not a true Buxus species, it shares many of the same attributes that make Boxwood such a desirable species.  You could not ask for a better wood to mill – this is perhaps the finest grained wood in the World. It has fine, uniform texture that is silky smooth & takes a high, lustrous finish.  The wood is able to hold extremely fine detail which makes it ideal for model ship building, instruments, carvings, engraving, inlay, piano keys, precision instruments, textiles, turnery,  chess pieces, veneer, bobbins, intricate turnings, shuttles, spindles, bow staves, spools & more! Colors range from creamy yellow to variegated brown/olive-like heartwood that is generally only on one face.

Boxwood trees are described as small, producing logs that are usually 9 to 12 feet in length, sometimes reaching 16 feet. Diameters are often 6 to 12 inches although a few may reach 18” There is no discernible difference in color between the sapwood (usually ½” deep) and the heartwood.  Dark streaks, which are present in the very core of the tree, are in only a small percentage of the heartwood.  The wood produced is straight grained and may contain a small amount of figure on quartered faces of select boards.  The wood has no discernible odor.

This wood has been kiln dried.  It has all been surfaced on two sides and has wax sealed ends.  These boards are great for planer soles, flutes, recorders, and much more! General defects are as follows: Look in pircures for bug holes. May have planer skip. Color generally is a product of the bug holes, similar to Ambrosia color streaks, so the more color the more bug holes could be present. This material is 90% free of defects, such as surface or end checks. This is a bargain compared to French Boxwood with nearly the same working properties in huge sizes with 80% less cost.

Beautiful color. Quarter to rift sawn.

Castello Boxwood, Calycophyllum multiflorum, originates in South American mostly in Paraguay.  Although not a true Buxus species, it shares many of the same attributes that make Boxwood such a desirable species.  You could not ask for a better wood to mill – this is perhaps the finest grained wood in the World. It has fine, uniform texture that is silky smooth & takes a high, lustrous finish.  The wood is able to hold extremely fine detail which makes it ideal for model ship building, instruments, carvings, engraving, inlay, piano keys, precision instruments, textiles, turnery,  chess pieces, veneer, bobbins, intricate turnings, shuttles, spindles, bow staves, spools & more! Colors range from creamy yellow to variegated brown/olive-like heartwood that is generally only on one face.

Boxwood trees are described as small, producing logs that are usually 9 to 12 feet in length, sometimes reaching 16 feet. Diameters are often 6 to 12 inches although a few may reach 18” There is no discernible difference in color between the sapwood (usually ½” deep) and the heartwood.  Dark streaks, which are present in the very core of the tree, are in only a small percentage of the heartwood.  The wood produced is straight grained and may contain a small amount of figure on quartered faces of select boards.  The wood has no discernible odor.

This wood has been kiln dried.  It has all been surfaced on two sides and has wax sealed ends.  These boards are great for planer soles, flutes, recorders, and much more! General defects are as follows: Look in pircures for bug holes. May have planer skip. Color generally is a product of the bug holes, similar to Ambrosia color streaks, so the more color the more bug holes could be present. This material is 90% free of defects, such as surface or end checks. This is a bargain compared to French Boxwood with nearly the same working properties in huge sizes with 80% less cost.

Nice color. 18″ check on edge that is 1/8″ to 1/4″ deep. We are not charging for the area with the defect.
