Character / Color:
Primavera is a very beautiful wood, sometimes called white mahogany because of its beauty and similarity in appearance to mahogany, except primavera is lighter in color. It is creamy white to yellowish rose, sometimes tinted with pale brown or pinkish stripes. Primavera is very strong, medium texture, with straight to interlocking and wavy grain, sometimes with a ribbon or fiddle-back figure. It has a fairly high luster, is easily dried with little or no degrade, and has excellent polishing and finishing characteristics. Primavera works easily and well with hand or machine tools, and holds nails and screws well.
Primavera is a premium blonde wood sought after for fine furniture and cabinetry, highly decorative and figured veneer, moldings, and high-class interior joinery.
