I love the contrasting materials….. Did you use any stain on the Jatoba?? I’ve seen brazilian cherry(other name for jatoba i think) before but it wasn’t any where near that deep red color….... Again nice work, thanks…..

Tim those are great looking! Very nice indeed.
I’m also curious about the jatoba. It looks really red compared to the wood I’ve used…but it’s a great effect and contrast!
Thanks for posting them.

The jatoba is actuall light brown, like teak. It just looks red in the photos.

Nice work, those Jatoba tops are awesome. I can imagine how nice kitchen cabinets would look if they were made out of that
