Tineo

Also known as Indian Apple, this unique species from South America has golden sapwood when first milled that darkens to a rich American Cherry color within a month or two.  The heartwood is marketed in veneer form as Tineo.  Heartwood colors are strikingly beautiful with a bluish black variegated stripe through pinkish red.    Steinway Piano Company makes a high end grand piano out of this wood!  Tineo is unstable until dried with considerable shrikage during the drying process.  Our larger turning stock is sold freshly cut and will need to be twice turned or allowed to move after shaping. Lumber is dry and usually surfaced on two sides.  The wood is easy to work and glues well.  Subtle and very exotic!

These are exceptional bowl blanks that have been air dried for three years! The larger blanks still have residual moisture but there will be minimal defects with the drying process because they have been cared for well and fully wax sealed.  As common with air drying there will be blanks with dark colorations in the wax. The wood is not necessarily this dark. These blanks may have a 1/16″ bow, twist, or cup but are in overall good condition for being big blanks!
