Featured Wood: East Indian Satinwood

East Indian Satinwood, Chloroxylon swietenia, is a very rare wood with an exquisite golden color and tight grain. In the best stock, the wood has a crystalline texture giving the grain the appearance of scattered tiny diamonds. Most of the East Indian Satinwood lumber comes directly out of Sri Lanka however the trees grow throughout India.

Often used in veneers, the European Veneer World refers to this species as Lemon Wood. Its other common North American name is Ceylon Satinwood.

Material typically runs 4-12 inches wide by 4-12 feet. The most common uses are for fine furniture, veneer, wood turning, and automotive & aircraft interiors.
