(Carapa guianensis)
Central and South America

Heartwood tends to be a pale reddish brown, darkening with age to a medium to dark brown. Sapwood is a lighter pink or pale brown, not always demarcated from heartwood. Andiroba has a uniform, fine to medium texture with a medium natural lustre and a straight grain, though the grain is sometimes wavy or interlocked.

Overall easy to work with both hand and machine tools. Sometimes pieces with interlocked grain will cause tear out during surfacing operations. Andiroba also has a moderate blunting effect on tool cutters. Andiroba has an increased risk of warping and other drying defects, partially because of its high T/R ratio (2.5). Andiroba glues, finishes, and turns well.Janka hardness of 1,220.

Common Uses: Veneer, plywood, cabinetry, furniture, flooring, interior trim, and turned objects.
