Bloodwood: Brosimum rubescens: While most often utilized in lumber form, bloodwood is known for its incredible hardness, toughness and durability, along with its deep red color. While bloodwood is in the same family as snakewood, it is far more stable and resistant to cracking. Bloodwood burls are rare and harvested from the eastern coast of Central and South America. The burls are small and often full of voids, but the wood is brilliantly colored and figured, often with cluster burl eyes, streaking of blood red and bright orange or crested with sapwood.
There may be small pin holes, bark pockets or voids. These are natural and a part of working with burl wood. Small voids can easily be fixed with CA glue (super glue).
