COUNTRY OF
ORIGIN
Central America
BOTANICAL NAMEMyroxylon Balsamo
OTHER NAMES

Balsamo (English) & Palo de Balsamo (Central America)
AKA Cabriziva, Cedro chino, Chirraca, Estoraque, Incienso, Nabal, Sandalo, Tache, Tolu

MECHANICAL PROPERTIESThis wood can be moderately difficult to machine, as would be expected from its density and its interlocked grain. Sharp tools and fresh sandpaper are necessary for finishing premium surfaces.
WORKING PROPERTIESThis lumber is moderately difficult to work with but can be finished smoothly with a high natural polish. Because of the density, all nails and screws must use pre-drilled holes.
SEASONINGThe lumber typically will be dried at the sawmill, rather than shipped green and dried in the United States. Even with this wood being so heavy, it reportedly dries without much difficulty.
USESFine furniture, cabinets, interior millwork, hardwood flooring, entry doors, stairs and moldings.
COMMENTSThis lumber IS NOT related to Honduran or African Mahogany
