Fava Amargosa

This hardwood type has light gray sap and a nice yellow-brown color with clear lighter and sporadic stripes, in beautiful structures. Fava Amargosa patins on sun exposure with a grayish tone. It is recommended to oil Fava Amargosa decking boards with a hardwood oil with pigment at least once a year, so color and glow are preserved, and the other natural properties of the wood are emphasized.

Fava Amargosa is used for tables, benches, floors and decking.

Dimensions: 21x145mm
