Imbuya. Beautiful veneer for a humidor for the best cigar storage
Imbuya Trade names: Amarela, Brazil nut tree Country of origin: South America Occurrence: Imbuya grows especially in southern Brazil, at medium altitudes, in the provinces of Sao Paulo, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande del Sol. The trees grow up to 20 meters high. Imbuya represents one of the most important commercially used woods in Brazil. Uses: It is used in high quality furniture making, high quality parquetry and interior finishing, but also as gun stock. Character: Imbuya is the wood of many faces, it is very rare to find two almost completely similar logs. In color, texture, and latch shapes, the wood is extraordinarily versatile. You can find bars in many forms, clusters, grains and the so-called „chicken scratch“, which is shown in the picture. As a result, it is almost never used in mass-produced furniture, as the characteristics are far too varied. Special features: Imbuya has a very characteristic spice-like smell that is still present after years.
