Jatoba is harvested from South America and is commonly known as “Brazilian Cherry.” It is used for a variety of Millwork products such as furniture, cabinetry, turned objects and other small specialty items, as well as flooring. It is relatively hard to work with because of its density and interlocked grain. Jatoba is very durable and resistant to termites. Its heartwood varies from light orangish to brown to darker reddish brown, sometimes with contrasting darker grayer brown streaks. The colors will darken with age, especially upon exposure to light.

Garapa, a species grown in South America, is an exceptional economical choice for outdoor applications, such as decking or siding. Low maintenance, its gold to tan coloring naturally weathers to a lovely silver-gray over time, unless a UV protectorate is applied, and it has a natural propensity to resist rot. Garapa is dense, stable, and hard, and is an excellent value given its longevity.

For a truly stunning and long-lasting outdoor project, Ipé (pronounced ee-pay) is the way to go. It can also be brought inside to be used as hardwood flooring. Grown in Brazil, its heartwood ranges from olive brown to blackish with lighter or darker striping. It’s extremely resistant to attack by decay fungus and insects, and is very durable, commonly seen with a lifespan of 30-75 years. Ipé is low-maintenance, requiring little more than an annual application of a UV protectorate, or if desired, skip the application and enjoy the beautiful natural silver patina that will result.

White Oak

White Oak (scientific name: Quercusalba) has a heartwood of light to medium brown color with an olive cast. Sapwood is almost white to light brown and not clearly distinguishable from the heartwood. Its texture is coarse and uneven, and grain is straight.

White Oak is commonly found in eastern United States. It is very durable.

Janka Hardness :

5,990 N (1,350 lbf)

Average Dried Weight :

755 kg/m3 (47 lbs/ft3)

Workability :

Good results achieved with either hand tools or machine tools.Turns well and responds well to steam bending. It is good with glues and stains, and finishes well. Moderate to high shrinkage value results in poor dimensional stability, particularly in flat cut/sawn boards. Prone to reacting with iron, especially when wet), which causes discoloration and staining.
