Wenge, Qtr Sawn

General Characteristics: Hard, dimensionally stable and durable. Machines, carves and finishes very satisfactorily.
Heartwood is chocolate to almost black in color. Close inspection shows the wood is actually comprised of alternate layers of distinctive dark and light-colored tissue.

This species grows in many tropical countries but the only important lumber producing trees are found in Africa. Wenge is a product of West Africa (Zaire, Cameroon and Gabon), while Panga Panga is found in East Africa (Mozambique, Tanzania and Kenya). Except for tiny white deposits in Panga Panga grain, the two woods are indistinguishable from each other.

Well known locally as a carving wood, and long prized on the continent as a cabinet wood. Wenge is used for fine furniture, interior and exterior joinery, paneling and turning. Regarded as a premier flooring wood as well.

4/4 $22.00 BF
