Louro Preto Veneered Panels & Jointed Veneer
Louro Preto is also known as Anacahuite, Baria, Siricote, Cupane, Amapa Asta, Canalete, Louro Pardo, Louro Preto and Loro Negro. It is found in northern Florida, West Indies, Central America, and southward to Brazil and Argentina.
The greyish or yellowish Louro Preto sapwood is rather sharply demarcated from the heartwood, which is tobacco coloured to reddish brown, with irregular dark brown or blackish streaks and variegations, with more or less of an oily or waxy appearance.
Louro Preto veneer grain is variable and texture fine to medium. Lustre is variable and the scent mildly fragrant, at least when fresh.
