(Dipteryx odorata), also known as Brazilian Teak or Golden Teak, is a naturally durable Brazilian timber with a density similar to Ipe. Cumaru is a South American wood that has a beautiful yellow-brown color and a fine interlocking grain pattern. Its consistent golden brown color and moderate cost make it an attractive alternate to more expensive hardwoods such as Ipe. Cumaru is resistant to rot and decay, making it an excellent choice for exterior applications such as decking. As a decking wood, Cumaru excels with high hardness, great strength, and reliable stability.
