Overview

Chakte Viga ranges in color from a striking orange-red to a golden brown, and darkens with time. Despite its density, it is quite easy to work with sharp tools. Chakte Viga features a beautiful natural luster, and is often markedly iridescent once finished. Closely related to Brazilwood (used for violin bows), Chakte Viga has similarly excellent acoustic properties.
