Machining
Despite the high density machining goes well with Red Angelim wood. Pre-drilling is necessary. With gluing and finishing are less experiences. The experiences are good for fingerjointing for exterior uses. It dries slowly with some risks of checking and deformation. Smaller dimensions give more risk of deformation.
Botanical name
Dinizia excelsa Ducke
Remarks
FSC Angelim Vermelho is available in large quantities in the Amazon regions of Brazil. The 20-30 meters high tree is straight and cilindric, often with buttresses. The diameter of the trunk is up to 1,5 meter, which makes it possible to produce larger dimensions of sawnwood.
