Get to know your wood species

Zebrawood -
Also known as Microberlinia brazzavillensis comes from Western Africa. Heartwood is a light brown or cream color with dark blackish brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra’s stripes. Depending on whether the wood is flatsawn or quartersawn, the stripes can be either chaotic and wavy (flatsawn), or somewhat uniform (quartersawn).

Wenge -
Wenge, a dark coloured Heartwood, is the product of Millettia laurentii. Millettia laurentii is a legume tree from Africa and native to the Republic of Congo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon, Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. Heartwood is medium brown, sometimes with a reddish or yellowish hue, with nearly black streaks. Upon application of a wood finish (particularly an oil finish) the wood can become nearly black.

Genuine Mahogany -
Also known as Swietenia macrophylla comes from Southern Mexico to central South America; also commonly grown on plantations. Mahogany’s easy workability, combined with its beauty and phenomenal stability have made this lumber an enduring favorite. It’s an incredibly important commercial timber in Latin America, where it’s now grown extensively on plantations.

Curly Maple -
Comes from Primarily temperate regions in the Northern Hemisphere. Called curly maple because the ripples in the grain pattern create a three dimensional effect that appears as if the grain has “curled” along the length of the board. It’s also referred to as fiddleback maple, in reference to its historic use for the backs and sides of violins.

Please advise boards might be off by 1/4-1/2" due to the nature of these wood from cutting.
