Uruguayan red grandis is plantation grown and harvested using FSC certified forestry practices. The species resembles mahogany in hardness, density and grain structure. It is aesthetically similar to cherry, mahogany or Spanish cedar when first sawn.
Over time, the wood oxidizes and its color deepens to a rich dark red. Among its positive attributes are its physical workability, stability, durability and resistance to decay. In addition, it is highly sustainable and FSC rated so availability and quality are very consistent. Another plus is that the price point is significantly less than mahogany or sapele.
