In this area, Brazilian Cherry is a very popular hard wood because it's a bit pricey. Face it, if you want to brag about your wood, you'd better make sure it's top quality. I had a customer about 2 weeks ago who was upset because we didn't carry samples of Brazilian Cherry. As I talked to him, I realized he was more interested in the faux wood, That's right, he wanted to boast about how great his wood was, when, in fact, it wasn't nearly as hard as he wanted people to believe.

Personally, I prefer bamboo. Fast grower, you know? Self-replenishing. Bamboo is great! Ten minutes after harvesting, it's big again. Over and Over again. Non-stop! Talk about a joy to behold. Let there be bamboo!
