The Timborana sapwood has a yellow-to-cream colored appearance, while the heartwood has more of a light yellow look with darker streaks. Known for its wavy, interlocking grain patterns, Brazilian/Oak Timborana is considered medium in both texture and luster. Like most Brazilian exotics, this specie has a reputation for being a hard, durable wood flooring option.
