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 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.

    Comments about Cherry, Brazilian 3/4" x 4" x 48" :

    I bought some of this and some maple to make a cutting board for a family member's birthday and I'm blown away by how beautiful the board is. The vibrant red of the cherry goes perfectly with the creamy white of the maple and the wood is dense enough that even without testing it out, I can tell it's going to survive years of knives running over it.
