Jatoba is a readily available rain forest wood, usually originating from the country of Brazil. It is often referred to as Brazilian Cherry, though it is not related to any cherry species. It tends to be quite intense in its original deep burgundy color, but that color generally browns over time. Hard and dense, it is easily machined, and can be used in almost any application. It is not known for possessing a particularly beautiful grain pattern, but is above average when considering the entire spectrum of available wood species.
