Natural Jatoba or (Brazilian Cherry) is one of the finest exotic species available at Gaylord's. It has rich red tones, ample variation and a unique grain. It is also very dense so it will be less prone to dents in the unfortunate event something is dropped. Natural Jatoba is a great option when choosing a hardwood that will be much better at hiding potential scratches, dents, dirt and dust. Jatoba contains natural oils that will slowly mature and change colour over time. The speed at which this change occurs relies almost entirely on how much light it is exposed to. When it is freshly installed the colour will be much lighter and within about a year or two, reach the rich red tones.
