Product Information:

Bubinga (Guibourtia spp.), an African species also known as African rosewood, is a beautiful dense hardwood with a rose-colored background and darker purple striping. Turns and machines well with sharp tools. Due to bubinga's high density and natural oils, it takes a high polish. Common uses for bubinga include veneer, inlays, fine furniture, cabinetry, turnings, and other specialty items. Since bubinga trees can grow so large, natural-edge slabs of the wood have also been used in tabletops and other specialized projects. Stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock, 100 percent clear and sanded on both sides.

    Comments about Bubinga 2" x 8" x 8" :

    The only suggestion I can make is I wish the pieces were identified with the type of wood stamped on the wax coating. When buying 6 or 8 different types, it is often hard to tell what type of wood was received as many have similar grain patterns and color.
