Red Palm - Cocos nucifera
Source Region: Myanmar
Red Palm has reddish brown fibers embedded in a lighter tan or light brown colored body. Fibers are more densely packed toward the outside of the tree trunk, becoming more and more sparse toward the center of the tree. The center core of the tree is soft and contains none of the darker vascular bundles that give the wood its characteristic look and hardness.
Red Palm tends to be quite difficult to work with both machine and hand tools. The hard fibers contrast with the soft body of the wood, and can be brittle and splinter or pull out. Very sharp tools and correct cutting angles are required to get clean results. Applying a hardener or sanding sealer prior to final sanding/machining may help give a more homogenous density and reduce tear out. The lighter-colored body of the wood tends to absorb larger quantities of finish, so care must be taken during finishing; a sanding sealer is recommended.
PLEASE NOTE: In addition to our standard return policy conditions, all costs incurred to ship wood back to Atlas will be at the buyer's expense. The wood cannot be machined in any way and must have our stamp on it.
