CURUPIXA

Micropholis spp.

Micropholis spp. of the family Sapotaceae, including at least Micropholis gardnerianum and Micropholis venulosa and perhaps others.

I am not familiar with this wood

my samples:
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting ("soft white" at 2700K)
colors will vary under other lighting conditions

none yet

web pics:


planks --- the red color on the second one seems very unlikely to me, but I cannot say for sure that it is incorrect.


flat sawn veneer --- not sure about color


quartersawn plank


plank listed as curupixa / Micropholis garderianmu


plank listed as curupixa / Micropholis venulosa


quartersawn veneer --- not sure about color


veneer with fairly reasonable color


closeup of a piece of veneer


veneer with definitely incorrect color --- the grain pattern shows nicely in these shots, but the green is totally bogus; the real wood in these pictures is light tan like the pics above which are labeled as having reasonable color


veneer --- I'm sure the green color is incorrect; the wood is probably tan


plain veneer and figured veneer both listed as curupixa / Micropholis crassipedicellata


veneer with yet another color (which to me actually looks more likely than most of what's on this page)


specifically listed as "figured" veneer, but ALL of the veneer seems to be figured this way


uh ... well, I now have an example of veneer that is NOT figured


bookmatched veneer listed as gogo / Mircopholis garderianum


veneer with a red color that I've never personally seen but which I cannot say for sure is incorrect.
