Tatajuba is currently only available in our lumber department as live edge slabs.
Heartwood colors range from red browns to more golden browns with lighter streaks. Usually interlocked grain with a medium to coarse texture. Used for heavy construction, as well as marine and boat construction, because of its hardness and durability.
Workability: Reported as easy to work. Both nail and screw holding properties are good. Pre-boring is still recommended. Tatajuba lumber also takes a high lustrous finish.
Common Uses: Tatajuba slabs make great table tops, counters, conference tables and other furniture.
