The sapwood of cumaru is very similar to the heartwood, which ranges from tannish to deep brown in color. Over time the color of Brazilian Teak (as it is sometimes referred to) will “flatten out” slightly. The species has an irregular, slightly interlocked grain and is coarse and wavy in texture. Cumaru is resistant to insect attack and decay. Cumaru can take some time to dry properly due to its propensity to shrink when freshly cut, but does have good stability characteristics once dry. Cumaru is a very durable wood and is much harder than any domestic wood we produce.
