Botanical Name:

Guarea cedrata spp.


Bosse, bossé claire, bosasa, lisasa, dumbala,

Also known as:

Bosse is an elegant species which exhibits a golden tan teak color when freshly milled, turning in to a caramel light brown color over time. It has a very uniform color from board to board. It can be used on both residential and commercial installations since it is one of the hardest woods available in the market with twice the hardness of Red Oak.
