|DESCRIPTION||Color varies from a golden tan to a reddish brown with some dark grain accents throughout the wood.|
South America (Brazil)
|BOTANICAL NAME||Dipteryx Odorata|
|OTHER NAMES||Almendrillo, Brazilian Teak, Tonka, and Tonquin Bean|
|MECHANICAL PROPERTIES||This wood has a bending strength of 14,793 psi.|
|WORKING PROPERTIES||Difficult to saw and bore. Where severely interlocked grain is not present, the wood planes to a smooth surface. Because of its high density and oily nature, the wood glues poorly. It nails and screws well; pre-boring is necessary.|
|DURABILITY||Cumaru is very durable. The heartwood has shown to be very durable in resistance to both brown-rot and white rot fungi. The wood has excellent weathering characteristics.|
|SEASONING||Cumaru is rated as easy to air-season with a slight tendency to check and with moderate warping; drying was uniformly rapid.|
|USES||Outdoor Decking, flooring, cogs and shafts, heavy construction, barge and dock fenders, railroad crossties, pulp mill equipment, tool handles, bearings, turnery. A substitute for lignum vitae.|
|COMMENTS||The cumaru tree is cultivated in many areas for the tonka beans used as a flavoring, which have a vanilla-like flavor.|

Boycott the Middle Man
Discover How IpeDepot.com Offers Sustainable Ipe Decking at Such Low Prices
Since the inception of our company, we've purposely avoided, and have boycotted anyone in our procurement staff and our producers throughout Brazil from dealing with lumber brokers, traders, or mills with a reputation of non-compliance. While other company's might fall for the tricks and deceptive practices that many brokers and mills employ, we've heard enough horror stories from customers that have been burned to know that it's sometimes better to take the more righteous path. This simple action of avoiding the middleman has enabled us to consistently import and ship only the best, sustainably harvested Ipe wood decking to you, our valued customers.
