Yellowheart: Exotic Wood
Yellowheart is an exotic wood known for its yellow color and is most often used in projects where its unique color can be showcased. Harvesting Yellowheart has recently been restricted, making it very difficult to source.
A good alternative to Yellowheart is American Osage Orange, which has the same yellow type color in it when first harvested and dried. The future availability of Yellowheart may be limited and is uncertain at this point.
