Peroba Rosa

Peroba rosa (aspidosperma peroba)  is a wood of variable colors, from tannish to as orange as the photo, which can remind one of the skin of a ripe peach.  It originates from Southern Brazil or Paraguay.  The grain is fine and the wood is extremely stable, making this an excellent turning wood.  Reportedly, it has good sound qualities for duck calls and chanters (bagpipes), and possibly other musical uses.  All of our pieces of peroba rosa are kiln-dried.  Turns very well.  Great to work with, fairly dense and fine grained, beautiful and not too expensive!

Peroba Rosa pen blank
Price: $3.50


Actual pieces for sale are shown, order by letter below. Peroba rosa, especially in dried pieces is rarely seen for sale. It is one of my favorite woods, ultra fine grain, finishes like a dream, works great on the lathe, takes detail, kind of like a hidden treasure most people in the wood world have passed over.
