Santos Rosewood Veneered Panels & Jointed Veneer
Santos Rosewood is sourced from South America and was originally brought onto the market as a substitute for the rarer Rio Rosewood. This wood has now established itself on the market as a highly decorative and desirable furniture wood, and the lighter and more distinctive the red colouring, the more valuable the veneer.
Santos Rosewood sapwood is white to pale brown in colour, while the heartwood is rich reddish brown and may contain streaks of slightly darker hue.
The grain of Santos Rosewood veneer is typically straight, although it may be interlocked, and texture is medium to fine.
