[WP05]Bloodwood(Brosimum paraense)

This wood grows in tropical South America. It is also known as cardinal wood or satiné . The heartwood is a deep, rich brick-red color. It is noteworthy in that it keeps its color over time and doesn't brown-out as do many of the other red-toned woods. Bloodwood is a hard, dense, heavy wood with a very fine, even texture and takes an excellent finish from the cutter. Its density is about 63 pounds per cubic foot (1010 kiligrams per cubic meter). Another wood that is excellent in polychromatic designs paired with African Blackwood as it produces a rich, deep-toned finished piece.
