Ziricote has a very unique appearance, which is sometimes referred to as “spider-webbing” or “landscape” grain figure. Commonly used for furniture, veneer, cabinetry, gunstocks, musical instruments (acoustic and electric guitars), turned objects, and other small specialty wood items.
|Colour/Appearance||Ranging from medium to dark brown, sometimes with either a green or purple hue, with darker bands of black growth rings intermixed.|
|Grain||Grain is straight to slightly interlocked. Medium to fine texture, with good natural luster.|
|Workability||Overall, Ziricote is fairly easy to work considering its high density. The wood tends to develop end and surface checks during drying, which can be problematic: though the wood is stable once dry. Also, pieces are usually available in narrow boards or turning squares, with sapwood being very common. Ziricote turns and finishes well, and in most instances, it can also be glued with no problems. On rare occasions, the wood’s natural oils can interfere with the gluing process.|
