Lidded vessel turned from Canarywood, with lit of Maidou Burl (Vietnam) and Snakewood (tropical America)

June 6, 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.
