T'Zalam Back + Side Set - 055

Similar in appearance to walnut, T'zalam has a beautiful copper to hazelnut coloring that comes alive under finish. Used as a veneer for years, this wood is steadily gaining appreciation for its acoustic tone by custom builders.

Minimum Dimensions
Back halves: 8-1/4" x 22 x 0.155" (210mm x 559mm x 3.9mm)
Sides: 31-1/2" x 5" x 0.130" (127 x 800mm x 3.3mm)

T'zalam, Lysiloma spp.
Also known as Caribbean or Mayan Walnut, Frijolillo, and more, T'zalam or Tzalam has the appearance of American Walnut, but with a higher density and uniform grain—making it ideal for backs, sides, and fingerboards.

The differing shades of brown are complemented with subtle hues of amber and red. The contrasting grainlines, yellow sapwood and figuring seen in some pieces creates a striking visual appeal. It's very easy to work with, and glues, finishes, and polishes extremely well.


All WOODSTAX items come with our 100% satisfaction promise and no-hassle returns. If you are unhappy with the wood once you get it, simply return it in its original, unworked condition for a full refund or exchange.
