I live in Brazil where we call this wood Garapeira but I think it is the same.
It is durable and has a good price too. If you find a nice piece it can even be stunningly beautiful as the cloour can change from yellow into red in one board. Anyway, I have realized that when ever I work with this wood without a mask which is stupid anyway I start feeling very feewerish in the evening.
When you are ready to send me a piece, please email me at eric wood-database. I want the end result to make a statement, and last for decades to come. Cedar seems like the ideal wood for this situation: stable and light.
I am considering using Garapa lumber to rebuild sauna benches. I can not find any information for this particular use. The only concern is heat retention and sitting on the surface. I think it would hold up great compared to ceder. Do you feel this would be a bad choice using Garapa?
Any assistance would be helpful. Skip to content. Related Species: None available. Garapa sanded Garapa sealed Garapa endgrain Garapa endgrain 10x. Notify of. Inline Feedbacks. Andreas Anwander.
