Brazilian Tulipwood (Dalbergia variabilis) is a colourful member of the true rosewood family, the tree grows in the northeastern provinces of Brazil and the nearly always small logs were shipped mainly from the seaport of Bahia, where the wood got its second name, "Bahia tulipwood" from. The wood itself is very hard and dense, its colour (not durable under strong sunlight) varies from pale pink- yellow- red with a striped figure to salmon-red, even violet shades. Adding to the vibrant color is the wood’s natural lustre. Tulipwood can be finished to a beautiful, lustrous finish when sealed or french polished.
Dimensions: ca. 120 x 19 x 19 mm.
