Formal Name: Platymiscium pinnatum
Color: Heartwood varies somewhat in color and can be found in red, black and brown variations, sometimes with mottling and streaks. Sapwood is very pale, almost white.
Shade: Dark
Grain: Tight, straight-grained wood with some interlocked grain and low luster.
Workability: Excellent machining characteristics that turns nicely. Wood finishes very smoothly, partly because the oils in the wood produce a natural polish. These same oils make it unsuitable for gluing and can cause adhesion problems with lacquer or urethane finishes.
Physical Properties: Medium-high density wood, dense and tough. Exceptionally high bending strength in air dried condition.
Uses: fine furniture and cabinetry, decorative veneers and inlays, as well as flooring, turnings, handles, musical instruments, jewelry and specialty items such as violin bows and billard cues accents.
Interior/Exterior: interior and exterior use
Origin: Mexico
