Red Heart (Sickingia salvadorensis), also known as Chakte Kok, is a very unique wood, its colour cannot be compared to any other wood you may know. The colour varies from fiery red to deep red, sometimes violet streaked, aging to deep crimson. The small tree is native to the east coast of Yucatan, Mexico up to southern Paraguay. Being of medium density it is nearly without any pores, has a medium to high hardness and is really very stable, like teak. It works exceptionally well, but should be protected against UV-rays.First cut boards, cracks can occur, often also traces of worm on sapwood side - therefore greatly reduced price!
