Pheasant Wood

Pheasant wood is a very close color and grain match to Desert Ironwood. It is excellent for fine articles such as boxes, pens, and more. … Usually grown as an ornamental tree for showy flowers, this species is more difficult to obtain than Ebony and is a cherished wood from the Hawaiians to the South East Asians.

The heartwood is a medium to dark brown, to nearly black, with ligher brown contrasting stripes, sometimes with a red or yellow hue. The striping is due to very wide parenchyma bands. Pheasant wood’s stripes tend to be light and with contrast, especially once a finish has been applied. Common Uses: Musical instruments (ukeleles and guitars), turned objects, carvings, and other small specialty wood items.
