Marupa

Marupa is harvested in Mexico as well as Central America.  It is easy to work, sands to a very smooth surface, making it great for a stained finish product.  Mostly used as a utility wood for millwork components such as toe kicks and drawer boxes, it is also commonly acceptable to use for veneer, moulding, interior joinery and cabinetry.  It is susceptible to termites and is not recommended to use outdoors.   Its heartwood is creamy yellow to whitish with a uniform texture and straight grain.
