Also called Jatoba or Brazilian Cherry, this hardwood grows from the Caribbean and southern Mexico to northern South America and Brazil. The wood's yellowish-brown to dark reddish-brown gives it a distinct color. Machiche wood features low cupping, splitting and splintering characteristics, and is also highly resistant to rotting. Machiche also offers low heat retention. Our Machiche finish renders a red to dark-golden, flat surface. It offers a resistance of 1,500 pounds per square inch, making it suitable for low traffic applications. It includes a 10-year warranty when used for interiors.
