Product Information:

Brazilian cherry (Hymenaea courbaril) also known as jatoba can vary in color, from a lighter orange-brown, to a darker reddish brown, which tends to become darker with age. The grain tends to be wavy and interlocked much like mahogany. Brazilian cherry glues, stains, and finishes well, and also turns well on the lathe. Grows in Central America, southern Mexico, northern South America, and the West Indies. Jatoba is exceptionally stiff, strong, and hard—among the very toughest of all timbers worldwide. The wood is used extensively in a variety of applications, including flooring, furniture, cabinetry, tool handles, ship building, railroad ties, turned objects, and other small specialty items. This micro-thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. 100 percent clear and sanded on both sides. Dimensions are +/- 1/8". Grain runs with the longest dimension.

  • Reddish/orange
  • Mahogany-like grain
  • Exceptionally strong
  • Central/South America
  • Turns well on the lathe

  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
