Fancy Stuff For Woodturners
Dalbergia frutescens - another from the Rosewood family that comes from tropical South
America (Brazil), same as Kingwood. The heartwood has pronounced pink-yellow striping
figure varying in shades from salmon pink to rose red and violet. The tree is small, so
most of the stock is narrow and 3" is an uncommon size. Tulipwood is beautiful as a
finished product and is a great seller as it really stands out in a display.
From logs to dimensioned
turning squares. Great colors
and even the smell of this
rosewood makes the whole
turning experience enjoyable.
