Pterocarpus indicus  Amboyna may also be called: Kiabooca or Angsana.  Originally emanating from the Island of Amboyna, it is also from Borneo and other South East Asian countries.  The name Kiabooca means twisted wood which refers to the  burls that are produced.  Once available in quantity in the Empire period from 1804 through 1815; used primarily for furniture inlays and panels.  Amboyna has become a rarity that is very scarce and is even difficult to obtain in veneer form in America.  The wood is dense and somewhat course; use sharp tools for best results.  It turns and finishes well, taking a glass-like nice high natural polish.  Amboyna is The World’s most popular and sought after burl thus leading to a short supply. Dry and ready to use. Surfaced on two sides.
W22641 and W22642: Ideal for a bass or electric guitar carved top. Each piece sold separately or call in your order and buy both for $750!

Borneo Ebony is a Diospyros sp. that is black in color with reddish/brown stripes that run parallel to the grain. Sometimes the sapwood is white. Only wood from very old trees or the heartwood is black or very dark in color. It is always carved when wet (before it dries out) in order to be malleable for the chisel. Its hardness and straight grain make it ideal for the carver. Usually, the finishing is done with a black wax to make the wood look darker, but the natural color is very beautiful. One unusual quality of Borneo Ebony is that if it cracks before it is dry, the crack will quite often close up again, leaving no trace of any flaw.
Air dried for 5+ years. Surfaced two sides with wax sealed ends.
W23059: 2″ check on edge grain only.

Bloodwood, Brosimum paraense, has commercial names that include Cardinal wood, Blood wood, Satine, Satina, and Satine rubanne.  A dense, fine grained wood, Bloodwood takes a high polish and can be used for anything from musical instruments, fine furniture, flooring, dye wood and intarsia, to inlay, and more.  From South America (chiefly Brazil) Bloodwood trees range from 40-70’ tall with diameter of 12” up to 24” for a large tree.  Limbs are generally present in the lower sections of logs and are cut out to produce clear usable lumber.  Dark red stock is getting harder to find; most of the recently imported wood has streaks or light color present.

Figured Bloodwood. Pockets of cluster burl. Kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. Figured areas have bark incursions. Pieces have between 1/8″ and 1/4″ twist.

1/16″ bow. Great figure!

African Padauk, Pterocarpus soyauxii, is a unique open grained hardwood from Africa that has a bright Vermillion color when first cut. Over time it slowly ages to a purple Rosewood color. Huge logs are sometimes available, producing beautiful, large boards.

The lumber is kiln dried, surfaced on two sides and is 95% free of defects except for a minor rough edge or small surface check. The majority of these boards are quarter and rift sawn which produces a beautiful ribboned figure from interlocked grain.  Padauk is easy to mill, glue, and work.  It is ideal for boxes, cabinets, instruments, and other fine articles.  For making pens we suggest buying a 4-5” wide board and then angle cutting it at about a 45 degree angle to capture the color changes  This is related to Amboyna burl (Pterocarpus indicus) from SE Asia and has similar colors when worked. We have a very limited amount of this material. Please purchase quickly to ensure the very best selection possible.

Planer skip on one face. There are two 1″ check next to the planer skip. There are three 3″ checks on opposite face.
