Ziricote is one of the most popular, visually striking exotic woods in the world. Renown for its "landscape" or "spiderweb" grain patterns, its colors range from medium to dark shades of brown (occasionally with either a green or purplish tint), and are accentuated by intermingled bands of unpredictable, irregular black growth rings. Sapwood is easily distinguishable by its dull off-white to pale yellow hue.
Although it is a fairly dense wood, its typical straight (though sometimes slightly interlocked) grains and fine to medium-fine texture give it cooperative working properties -- as it cuts, turns, glues and finishes smoothly.
Our Ziricote turning squares come in range of sizes and are excellent quality lumber.
The sizes are all rough-guides, but are basically accurate.
If you have very strict size criteria, please just drop us an email to confirm they will meet your expectations.
The photographs are representative of the stock you will receive. You won’t typically received surfaced blanks, but we surface a few on the photographs to give you an idea of what the lumber looks like.
