Bloodwood
(brosmium paraense)



Bloodwood can be the reddest wood out there without resorting to a bottle of dye.  It has a pleasant smell when turned and is very dense. The specific gravity can vary from .7 to 1.0.  The wood we sell tends to be on the higher end of density.  It is native to Brazil and other areas in South America.  When sanding, be careful not to overheat the piece or cracks could result.  If a tiny check appears, we immediately fill it with superglue, and there is no visual evidence of the check afterwards. Photo above is of DARK grade. Note that when we say "air dried" or "kiln-dried" we mean that the wood has been properly checked with a corrected moisture meter and is known to have less than 12% moisture. 12% moisture is what used to qualify as a kiln-dried piece of wood in the past. Unfortunately, many vendors have started using using up to 18% moisture (which is unstable) to count as kiln-dried and completely wet wood to count as air dried. We don't make claims of "air dried" or "kiln-dried" unless we know the actual moisture and it is genuinely under 12%.

HOW WE GET TOP QUALITY:   Bloodwood comes in a variety of shades from brownish to cranberry red (pictured here). Because of the fact that most bloodwood isn't as dark as it used to be, we are seperating wood into two categories of medium dark to darker reds= (DARK) and light to medium reds= (MEDIUM).  Our bloodwood is kiln-dried in the 1" thickness. Pieces above 1" thick are partially air dried and cut very cleanly with no checks or cracks, unless specifically noted as air dried. We have found that over 1.5" bloodwood cannot be kiln-dried without checks appearing on the inside of the wood. This is why we have switched to non-kiln dried wood in pieces above 1". Each piece is high quality and has color according to the new grading system.
