Jatoba wood – also known as courbaril and Brazilian cherry – is one of the most popular exotic wood species due to its rich and contrasting appearance.
Jatoba wood is quite popular for its innate beauty, drawn from the subtlety of its grain combined with its natural colour, thus accentuating the rich tones of this exotic species.
Jatoba is a warm wood with character that offers a rich colour and superior hardness. With its golden sheen, this wood has a dense texture that ranges from medium to coarse, along with an interwoven grain. In addition, jatoba is a solid wood of stunning hardness that’s virtually free of knots. It’s also a very hard wood: twice as hard as sugar maple and four times as hard as cherry.
Jatoba is sought-after for its pronounced and rapid colour change, which makes it one of the species that changes the most in colour over time. Indeed, its colour will shift from yellowish-brown to salmon red to dark red with black stripes, which evolves over time to take on a deep reddish-brown shade.
It’s not for nothing that jatoba is considered an evocative and fascinating species every time!
