Jatoba, also known as brazillian cherry, is a light orange brown to dark brown hardwood from the tropical regions of the Americas.   Medium to course interlocking grain with a natural sheen.  Jatoba is resistant to rot and a variety of insect attacks due to its density.  The interlocking grain makes machining difficult, and its hardness has a blunting effect on tooling.  This particular species glues, turns and finishes well and is capable of steam bending.  It has been used for furniture, cabinetry, and flooring, as well as decoratively in turning and knife scales.  Jatoba is near the top of the Janka scale at 2690, and weighs 5.8 pounds per board foot, making it one of the densest woods available.

13/16ths is commonly called finish planed.  This should be ready for sanding and finish
Ripped 1 Edge is lumber that has been run through a straight-line rip saw.  This allows for easy squaring on a table saw.
