Goncalo Alves wood ranges in color from light to reddish brown to deep mahogany red-brown with a striking figure created by beautiful, bold, brown to nearly black irregular markings or striping. The texture is fine to medium and uniform, with a fine grain, varying from straight to interlocked and wavy. In spite of its high density, Goncalo Alves turns readily, carves well, finishes very smoothly, and takes a beautiful natural polish.
Goncalo Alves is highly prized for its outstanding beauty. It is used for fine furniture and cabinet making, carving, turning items such as bowls and trays, specialty items such as knife handles, brush backs, and archery bows, and for decorative and figured veneers.
