Also called "Pau Ferro" or "Morado"
This wood has excellent fine grain
and very attractive stripes. It is great to work, both as a turning
and a furniture wood. Recently, furniture companies have been realizing
the great appeal of this wood for high end furniture. This
has driven up demand, and at the same time the Bolivian government
is allowing much less of the wood to leave the country in log form where
it can be cut into turning stock. These two factors are driving
up prices. The wood is now becoming harder to get as quality
turning blanks. Specific gravity is about .85 .
