Peroba de Campos (Paratecoma peroba) Peroba Rosa

Post by gdcarpenter » Mon Jul 23, 2018 5:33 pm

Think I finally discovered what type of hardwood I scrounged at a tear down. Seems it's Peroba Rosa from South America. I found it in a garage we were tearing down that was built in 1942. They were just elevated slats for dry storage. Experts on 'Lumberjocks' provided the help, Lord knows I had never heard of it.

This stuff is heavy, the samples I have average about 60 lb./ cu. ft.! Should make hardy frames for my Century boat restoration!

This is my first, last and only boat build.
