Lidded vessel turned from Canarywood, with lid of Maidou Burl and Snakewood
January 13, 2022
Canarywood [Centrolobium spp.,family Leguminosae] is a very beautiful and colorful turning wood from Tropical America. Canarywood has a wide range of yellow to red hues. It is anideal turning wood and takes a great finish. Maidou Burl is one of the most precious woods still safely harvested. Snakewood has fantastic figure (as implied by its name), and is supremely hard and heavy—and again, very expensive except as a detail wood.
