Powers Wood Source


Astronium fraxinifolium

The color of goncalo alves is light golden-brown to reddish-brown with blackish-brown streaks of variable spacing. The odor and taste are not distinct, and the luster is dull to medium. Sometimes the wood has a mottled figure resembling some rosewoods in the genus Dalbergia.

In general the wood is somewhat difficult to work, but workability varies considerably according to density. It finishes with a high natural polish, turns well and is noted for its durability.

Goncalo alves is used for boat building, general construction, furniture and cabinetry, flooring, shutters and bobbins, veneer, plywood, turnery and for knife handles and a cocobolo substitute.
