Black Heart Sassafras

BSBllkSassafrasStephenKinnairdZOOMAtherosperma Moschatum

Few woods on the market match the striking color contrasts found in this species. A native Tasmanian timber, the dark, variegated colors in the center of the log are caused by a fungus which fortunately, does not disturb the stability of the wood. The wood is light in weight, easy to work, bend and to finish. Tonally it falls into a category that might also include Myrtle, Walnut and Maple, so expect an open sound with nice separation and sparkling highs.

WARNING: The black stripes in Sassafras are caused by a fungus, therefore, the dust should not be inhaled. Care should be taken when sanding all woods as wood dust can have adverse health consequences.
