Mandioqueira Hardwood

Mandioqueira hardwood, sometimes called Sucupira Amarela, stands out for its beautiful pinkish brown to reddish brown colour. Its trendy appearance and advantageous properties make Mandioqueira a versatile type of wood. This can also be seen by the many different projects with Mandioqueira wood for which we have supplied the wood. You can see a selection of these projects in the photo album on this page.
