Redheart is a dense fine textured hardwood from Central America with a beautiful red heartwood color. As with many red colored woods such as Padauk and Bloodwood, Redheart will oxidize to a brown color if not protected by a UV blocking finish. Redheart is a difficult lumber to dry but when cured properly it makes beautiful furniture.
