Wood Atlas - Xylarium
Imbuya (Ocotea porosa) is sometimes called Brazilian walnut, although botanically it has nothing to do with the walnut species. It has a distinctive, peppery smell as you work with it that I find very pleasant. The tree can reach a height of 130 feet and over 5 feet across. Imbuia can have beautiful burl wood with a very interesting play of colors from light to dark brown, with dark yellow areas.
The wood is very easy to work and medium hard and is therefore highly sought-after for many fine crafts.
