Griffin Exotic Wood

Miscellaneous wood types


This is where we put the type of wood that we just don't have much of, usually they are great stuff. These woods are just too uncommon, or just too hard to get to offer on a regular basis.

All sides similar to the above shown. This is something we've never had before. Salt water bog oak. Most bog oak is from freshwater bogs. This material is pretty old, with dates between 3700 and 5400 years. Nice dark pieces. Some have a few salt crystals in them, some don't. You can leave them in, or flick them right out with a pin if you don't want them showing. Generally, the darker the wood, the older it is.

Curacao de negro is an unusual Central American/South American wood that has a very high density and very fine grain. Another unusual property of this wood is the color change. Wood that is not exposed to light is an orange/tan color. This color changes relatively quickly to a charcoal color as seen in the photo. If you want to change the color, finish final sanding and then expose the wood to direct sunlight. Sunlight through a window may or may not work. We changed ours in a matter of about 8 hours of sun exposure. This is probably Swartzia leiocalycina. Only 19 available.

This wood hasn't been around on the market in years. We got these about 12 years ago. This type of padauk (from which amboyna burl comes) is far more colorfast than african padauk. Look at this deep red color in these pieces, they have not even started to turn brown in 12 years! The grain is also finer than african padauk with a higher density too . Dried completely.
