Jatoba wood is used for a wide range of applications: interior: e.g. flooring, parquet, stairs, furniture and window framing exterior: e.g. cladding, doors, window framing, constructions and garden furniture.
The heartwood has a pink red to orange red colour, darkening to (dark) red brown. Often with a pattern of small black stripes. The grey brown sapwood is easy to distinguish. The heartwood has a nice lustre. The texture is fine to medium fine.
Despite the high density, machining goes fairly easy, with a smooth result. The glueing and finishing properties are rather good, despite the closed surface.
Jatoba wood is available in the Amazon region of Brasil.
The large trees have a diameter up to 1 m and can reach up to 40 m. The trunk has a fairly straight shape, which makes it possible to produce larger dimensions.
