Red Palm (Cocos nucifera) or Coconut Palm is native to Southeast Asia. This interesting exotic wood comes from the outer hardened area of a type of palm tree that is found in Australia and Southeast Asia. Reddish brown fibers are embedded in a lighter tan or light brown colored body. The wood is hard, dense and extremely durable but not heavy. While the wood is called black or red, it actually has black or red flecks in a streaked pattern on a light or deep tan background. The distinctive end grain has an extremely interesting speckled appearance.
Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project. Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
