Sucupira Vermelho


Sucupira vermelho (also called Andira) is available in the forests of Precious Woods, located in the Amazon region in Brazil. The trees attain diameters of 60-90 cm. The clear trunks have lengths of 12-18 m.



The color of the heartwood is brick red to dark (brown) red. The lighter colored parenchyma causes a nice stripy pattern. The sapwood can be easily distinguished. The grain is mainly straight, sometimes interlocked. The texture is coarse. Sometimes, compression failure and ring shake can be found.


Processing properties

Machining of Sucupira vermelho can be done easily. The sawdust can cause an allergic reaction.  Pre-drilling is recommended. Gluing (including oil/stain) and finishing are reported to be good. Drying goes slowly with few risks of distortion and checking.
