Spalted Tamarind


Tamarind is used to make furniture, carvings and turned objects. Although the heartwood is reddish brown, sometimes with a purplish hue, the pale yellow sapwood is more commonly used. This sapwood is prone to attack by fungi which causes spalting. The spalting is responsible for the dark lines that run through the wood and around the grain. Due to its density and interlocked grain, tamarind is considered difficult to work, but this one cut nicely.

Tamarind, which is indigenous in tropical Africa, produces pod-like fruit, which contain an edible pulp that, although sour, is used in cuisines around the world. The wood can be used for a variety of woodworking products. Tamarind seed oil can be extracted from the seeds. Because of the tamarind’s many uses, cultivation has spread around the world in tropical and subtropical zones.
