home / woods / jatoba

Jatoba is South American and is generally used to make very high quality wood flooring that is imported to the US under the name Brazilian Cherry. It ain't cherry. Its Jatoba. It is hard and heavy, and takes a beautiful polish. The quartersawn stuff is sometimes ribbon grained and super stable. All Jatoba is UV sensitive, so it darkens from a pale rust to deep red with a rich patina over time.
