Yellowheart

(Euxylophora Paraensis )
Common Names:Yellowheart. Pau Amarello.
Location:Brazil
Tree:A large tree of the "terra firma" reaching a height of 130 ft.
The Wood:This beautiful exotic and imported hardwood is a bright yellow color, darkening only a little on exposure to sunlight. There is a little differentiation between heartwood and sapwood, or between spring and summer growth rings. The color is very consistent across the wood. It is usually straight grained and uniform. It dries relatively easily with limited checking and cracking.
Workability:Yellowheart is relatively easy to work with both hand and power tools. It nails adequately, glues easily and sands to a high polish. This is not an oil wood, so it finishes with relative ease.
Use:Flooring - furniture - knife handles - pens - scroll work - turnings - inlays - cabinetry.
