Specie Information

    Cedrela fissilis

    Spanish Cedar should not be confused with any of the American Cedars. It is closer in its botanical relation to Honduras Mahogany. It is used for window frames, decks, fine furniture, humidors, and exterior millwork.

    DISTRIBUTION
    Spanish Cedar is harvested in most all Central and South American countries.

    GENERAL DESCRIPTION
    The color ranges from pinkish-brown to dark reddish-brown. It has shallowly interlocked or straight grain with a moderately coarse texture. The wood will sometimes excrete a volatile oil that will appear on the surface as a sticky residue. This wood is excellent for all types of exterior use due to its high resistance to insect infestation and decay.

    WORKING PROPERTIES
    Machines easily with either hand or machine tools. Tools must be kept sharp or some wooliness will occur.

    AVAILABILITY
    Moderately available in 4/4” through 8/4” with good widths and lengths.
