Appearance

The heartwood ranges from dark, red-brown to light orange brown with sapwood that is light grey-yellow. Colour tends to darken with exposure to light.

Workability

The grain is typically interlocked and prone to tearout when worked with hand tools. It also has a blunting effect on all edge tools and is considered difficult to work.

Uses

Flooring, furniture, cabinetry, tool handles, hand planes, and other decorative objects.

Additional Comments

Jatoba is exceptionally stiff, strong, and hard—representing a great value for woodworkers seeking high-strength, low-cost lumber. It is a favorite for making long-lasting wooden hand planes.
