Jatoba

Jatoba is one of the most popular imported wood species because of its innate beauty, its rich colour and superior hardness. It’s a very hard wood with a dense texture and interlaced grain. Its colour ranges from yellowish brown to red salmon to dark red streaked with black, changing over time to take a deep reddish brown highly sought after. It’s a stable wood with an amazing hardness and almost knots free.
