Jatoba wood can be challenging to work with, just as with other hardwoods. But with the appropriate tools and implements, these challenges can easily be solved. It’s essential to consider the species’ hardness and consider the dulling of tools.
Because of moderate difficulty, working with Jatoba is often compared to Red Oak. But not everything about this species is difficult to work with. Jatoba glues, stains, and even finishes astonishingly nicely, resulting in an awe-inspiring final result. Most people prefer to polish this species to achieve a beautiful and mesmerizing luster. While it’s easy to get lost in all these tips, the one thing you must take away is that screwing is highly recommended over nailing because of Jatoba’s immense density.
