About Pistachio wood:
Primarily recognized for its edible nuts, the pistachio tree also yields remarkably stunning wood that is seldom seen or used in wooden creations. Like olive trees, pistachio trees hold greater value in orchards for their food production, with their wood often taking a backseat in terms of appreciation.
The heartwood of pistachio trees exhibits a wide spectrum of colors, ranging from light olive green to orangish or purplish brown, frequently accented by darker brown to black stripes. The light yellow/gray sapwood is notably wide, clearly delineating the heartwood from itself. This unique combination of tones and patterns makes pistachio wood a rare and captivating choice for woodcraft.
