Canarywood comes from all over South America.  Its heartwood can range from yellow to pink to orange.  Some of the prettiest pieces can have all 3 color variations in one piece.  Other pieces, more consistent in color, have at times resembled Cherry.  Being both durable and relatively hard, but still fairly easy to work, it gives woodworkers a good opportunity to work with a color-variable, but less expensive exotic hardwood from South America.

Sustainability: Not listed in CITES Appendix or the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Comments: With pretty color variations, the right board could offer a good, lower price alternative Brazilian Tulipwood.
