Jatoba Hymenaea Courbarri
Jatoba or Brazilian Cherry grows throughout Central and South America. Popular for the building of bridges and abutments. The bark is used to produce Copal, which is marketed as an ingredient in varnishes and paints. After drying, care in storage is a necessity, as the cut Brazilian Cherry / Jatoba boards can warp and crack easily. End sealer before working is a recommendation. Red-orange in color, the wood from this tree can be as wide as 14". Over time the color will mellow to a more russet.
