Monkey Pod Woodturning Blanks !
The beauty of Monkey Pod turning wood can be seen in this bowl that I made.
Monkey Pod's heartwood is golden-brown to dark brown in color. The sapwood is cream in color and is distinct from the heartwood. Wood vessels contain shiny, brown deposits. The grain is wavy, often interlocked. This turning wood is considered easy to work, particularly because low shrinkage during drying allows it to be easily machined while green. Woodturning items made from this green wood can be dried without serious drying degrade.
The Hawaiian common name, Monkey Pod is used here. Raintree and Saman are the names used throughout Latin America. It is called Mimosa in the Philippines.
Our woodturning bowl blanks and spindle blanks are green wood. They are sealed in wax to slow or prevent drying.
The beauty of Monkey Pod turning wood can be seen in this urn that I made. It measures 15" in height by 9" diameter.
