Tulipwood is an exotic wood native to the tropical region of South
America, mainly Brazil. It is a hard and heavy wood, with a rather fine
texture. The sapwood is a solid yellow color, while the heartwood color
ranges from a pink to a darker red, with a straw colored background.
Tulipwood is excellent for wood turning, as well as knife handles,
furniture, pens and cabinets. It is a lustrous wood, has excellent polishing
qualities, and glues well.
