Chakte-viga is a wood that is a close relative of pernambuco. It grows in Central America and in Northern South America. The wood has a very fine grain and works very much the same as pernambuco. It tends to be an orange-yellow color (occasionally very light orange) upon cutting and then turns a deep reddish orange over time. Its the best orange wood available and reportedly turns/works well. Some may have black lines, most have few or none. Economically priced for such a nice wood and is less than half the price of pernambuco. It is allowed to be shipped internationally. Often looks lighter when fresh cut but turns orange again soon.
