I am thinking about using bloodwood in a segmented bowl. In the past I used a red colored wood with a light wood and when I sanded it, it bled into the lighter wood. Does bloodwood do this or is there a different red colored wood that does it?

I think if you would wet the wood from time to time and sand it to a finer grit the dust will quit bleeding over. It's just sticking in the roughness of the wood and when you get it sanded to a fine enough grit it will quit. Wetting the wood raises the grain and makes your sanding more effective.

I can't say for sure, but I'd imagine that the oil content of the bloodwood would cause some staining on a light wood, no matter how high you sanded it to. Never tried it though

I need cheaper hobby
