Marblewood

 

marblewoodGeneral:  Found in Northeastern South America.

Description:  The wood is yellow to golden brown, with irregular brown, purple, or black streaks.  Marblewood’s overall appearance is very similar to Zebrawood, though Marblewood tends to have a slightly finer texture.

Workability:  Tends to be difficult to work on account of its high density. Marblewood can have a moderate to severe blunting effect on tool cutters. Glues, turns, and finishes well, though there is a high risk of checking and resin seeping during drying.

Common Uses:  Flooring, sliced veneer, turned objects, cabinetry, and fine furniture.
