Overview

Argentine Lignum Vitae bears a striking resemblance to its famous tropical cousin "Lignum Vitae," and makes an excellent, affordable alternative. An olive-green to rich brown wood with straight grain, it has a satiny feel and a spicy-sweet fragrance. Like its namesake, it is incredibly dense and quite oily. These turning blanks are available in an assortment of sizes for bowls, platters, carvings, bottle stoppers, chess pieces, tool handles, table legs, spindles, finials, candlesticks and whatever else your imagination can conjure up!

Due to high demand and limited supply, we cannot always guarantee that this item will be in stock. Turning Blanks come rough sawn to nominal thickness and are coated with wax.

  • Botanical Name: Bulnesia Sarmientoi.
