Welcome back to novausawood.blogspot.com, the most in-depth hardwood species series on the web. Today's blog is a product spotlight on a beautiful exotic hardwood species that is extremely versatile, Timorana

Timborana, also known as Brazilian Oak, is an elegant light colored exotic hardwood species, which can be found throughout Central America & Brazil. The wood ranges in color from a light tannish-yellow to a slightly darker golden reddish-brown. As the wood ages it will slowly develop moderate red tones, which only enhance its overall beauty. The grain of the wood is interlocked with a medium to coarse texture. Timborana has a hardness rating of 1570 making it just a little more dense than North American Hard Maple. Additionally, it has an excellent stability rating.

Unlike bold species such as Ipe and Morado, which can be a little intimidating, Timborana will seamlessly blend with almost any surrounding.
