Named for it's rich red color, Redheart lumber exhibits a variety of interesting streaks, patterns and closed knots. The wood has extremely small pores with a very fine overall texture, and is easily worked with hand or power tools. The initially bright color of Redheart fades to a reddish brown tone with exposure to sunlight.

  • Hardness: Hard; similar to oak.
  • Grain/Texture: Very small pores, and a fine, even texture.

  • Workability: Redheart planes, machines, and sands well.
  • Takes glue and finish well.

I am an artist whom works with many different mediums. When working with exotic woods I prefer to avoid coloring the wood, but rather use woods which have a natural pigment such as this beautiful piece. The red really pops when used right.

is the wood you sell dryed or close to it?
tommyd on Feb 13, 2018
Can I get redheart in 8 inches wide instead of 3 inches ?
Dave T on Nov 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, we don't sell it that width.
Do any of these come in 3/4" dowel form?
John P on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think I did see it at one point but what I do is I get a thick sheet of steel and make a hole with the dowel size that I want with smaller holes on the top or bottom. There's a few youtube videos. That's what I did.
when do you expect to have some redheart?
jim s on Jun 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Jim, I gave up on Rockler and went somewhere else to buy red heart.
