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.

Technical Details:
  • Chakte Viga: (Mexican Pernambuco) Caesalpinia platyloba
  • Native to: Mexico and Central America.
  • Hardness: Chakte Viga is very hard; about twice as hard as white oak.
  • Grain/Texture: Fine, even texture. Natural luster.
  • Rot Resistance: Extremely rot-resistant. Sometimes used as fence post material.
  • Workability: Machines well with sharp equipment. Occasional interlocking grain can result in tearout. Takes glue and finish well.
  • Odor: Slight.
