Commonly referred to as Pau Amarello— which is Portuguese for “yellow wood”—few woods are as consistent and vibrant a yellow as Yellowheart. The wood is also sometimes sold as Brazilian Satinwood, though it is not to be considered a true satinwood.

 

Brazilian Walnut - Ipe

Found in Tropical Americas (Central and South America); also farmed commercially

The heartwood can vary in color from reddish-brown, to a more yellowish olive-brown or darker blackish-brown; sometimes with contrasting darker brown/black stripes. In certain species, there are powdery yellow deposits within the wood. Ipe can be difficult to distinguish visually from Cumaru, another dense South American timber, though Ipe tends to be darker, and lacks the subtle yet characteristic vanilla/cinnamon scent while being worked.

It has a fine to medium texture, with the grain varying from straight to irregular or interlocked. Moderate natural luster.

It is rated as very durable with excellent insect resistance. It also has superb weathering characteristics.

Also known as Ipe or Lapacho.
