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.
🪵 Good to know
Great to work with, fairly dense and fine grained, beautiful and not too expensive!
