SCIENTIFIC NAME: Apuleia leiocarpa
Color/Appearance: Heartwood is a medium to dark reddish brown. Color tends to darken with age. Pale yellow sapwood is clearly differentiated from the heartwood, though not always sharply demarcated.
Workability: Despite its high density, Bulletwood generally produces good results with both hand and machine tools, though it does exhibit an above-average dulling effect on cutters. Responds well to steam-bending. Can pose challenges in gluing due to high density and oil content.
Common Uses: Heavy construction (within its natural range), decking, flooring, boatbuilding, bent parts, and turned objects.
