Cumaru - Brazilian Teak
True Teak – Plantation Grown
This prefinished flooring purchase resulted from the milling of the 35-year growth of this true teak in the Brazilian Amazon region.
This teak is plantation grown – which means responsibly harvested.
Teak hardwood flooring is an attractive, durable option for the home that has a rich, brownish hue. Teak flooring is derived from the teak tree, which is indigenous to parts of Southeast Asia. However, it is also grown in parts of Central and South America. Teak wood flooring ages beautifully and get richer looking with time.
Brazilian Oak hardwood is more commonly known as Tauari in the Amazon Basin area of South America. This is not to be confused with Amendoim, which is sometimes referred to as Brazilian Oak. Tauari is a species of tropical hardwood that is resistant to insects and damage from moisture.
Blood Wood, also known as Satine (Brosimum rubescens), comes from tropical South America.
It is an extremely dense wood and has a bright, vivid red color. Once finished, it offers an exceptional and lustrous red surface. Applying a thick protective finish and keeping the wood out of direct sunlight can help preserve this beautiful color. It is very durable and resistant to most insect attacks. Other uses for blood wood include carvings, trim, inlays, furniture, guitars, knife handles, and turned objects.
We have one odd lot of approximately 800 square feet of Blood Wood Shorts 3 1⁄4” wide, micro-beveled edge @ $10.00 per square foot.

Massaranduba Wood (also spelled Macaranduba), also known as Brazilian Redwood or Bullettwood, is a beautiful, rich-looking alternative to Ipe. More fine-grained and uniformly colored, the light-reddish wood makes for an elegant deck. Widely used in Europe and South America, Massaranduba decking is knot-free, even-toned and low maintenance. It is becoming very popular as a high-end flooring alternative after being used all over Brazil for such!
Massaranduba Wood (manilkara bidentata) is very smooth to the touch and shares many of the durable properties of Ipe. It is strong and hard and will also last many years in service. Massaranduba Wood is a natural hardwood so it is recyclable at the end of its service life.

Also known as Goncalo Alves or Jobillo
This is THE most beautiful and elegant flooring from South America (Brazil). It adds such a warmth to a room. It will change the way you see floors.
Here’s the story: We had so many folks interested in 1) the hardness of Tigerwood (2,600 Janka hardness; hickory is 1,500); 2) the widths of Tigerwood; 3) the many attractive pieces of light Tigerwood. We also have had many folks that do not want the darkness of a striped dark floor project. So, recently we discovered that the Astronium Graveolens specie of wood (referred to as ‘True Tigerwood’) has certain tendencies for less stripes in some parts of Brazil than others (due to soil conditions). We had some of these lighter and harder logs run in the mill and loved the results.
These ‘Tigerwood’ logs produced a lighter (with minimal striping) floor with a beautiful variance of hues that create a very warm and inviting floor for those that love Tigerwood flooring but would rather have minimal striping.
These lots of Brazilian Koa (Tigerwood) are first quality and the REAL DEAL – REAL TIGERWOOD!
