Sourced and provided by Exotic Hardwoods UK Ltd, a premier supplier of exotic hardwoods, Black Poisonwood offers a unique material for discerning craftsmen, artisans, and woodworking enthusiasts.

    Originating from tropical regions of the Caribbean, Central America, and South America, Black Poisonwood is derived from the Metopium brownei tree, a member of the cashew family.
