Garapa has a golden to yellowish brown colour. It is extremely stable and easy to work with. It initially can be yellow in colour but will either oxidise to a beautiful grey or if oiled, to a rich golden brown. It is generally available in long lengths and our recommended width would be 90mm, however it is also available in 140mm
