Brazilian Cherry hardwood lumber, sometimes known as ‘Jatoba,’ is sold across South America. Brazilian Cherry is sourced from renowned mills in Brazil. After surfacing, Jatoba has a lighter, golden tone but quickly darkens to a reddish-brown tint. It has a medium texture and a grain pattern that ranges from straight to wavy.
Brazilian Cherry is dense, sturdy, and long-lasting, as well as rot and termite resistant. The working properties are excellent. It is widely used in fine hardwood furniture, tool handles, stair treads, and high-end custom flooring because it has a wonderful natural shine when finished.
