Well I’m going to be building a corner curio cabinet. It’s going to be built form Brazilian cherry and tulip, at least that’s the plan. I’ve never worked with these woods but thought it would be a nice annaversy gift for my wife. Does any one know if these woods are hard to word with?

Welcome to LumberJocks.
I have some experience with Brazilian cherry. It is not the easiest wood to work. Just make sure that your tools are sharp and will need to be resharpened when the project is complete. It is a beautiful wood and gets better looking as it ages. You can see my sideboard or my ‘projects’ page.

Brazilian Cherry (Jatoba) is one of my favorite woods to work with. Yes, it is hard and will burn fairly easily with router bits. But it finishes beautifully and gets more beautiful as it ages.

Never worked with any tulip.

Thanks for the info guys it really helps I never thought that it that It would be that hard. Then I have not done to much with to many hard woods before. Is there any place that you would recommend getting wood from my local lumber yards said that they can’t get it? I’m not a fan of buying stuff online but I will if I have to.

Have your say...
