JW Hardwoods provides only the finest Yellowheart lumber from reputable sources insuring not only great quality lumber, but the highest yield.  The specie is sometimes referred to as “Satin Wood” however, it generally lacks the strong grain figure that is common and expected in Satinwood.  Yellowheart is generally sold as lumber and is quite inexpensive for an imported specie and is one of the most consistent and vibrant Yellow colored species of wood available in the commercial market.
