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.

    Nothing wrong, but nothing special

    There was nothing wrong with it, rather just a little boring/plain. By the picture, it seemed as though there would at least be some figure to the blank. Almost all the Bubinga I've seen has some. I don't really recall, but I'm not sure how it was advertised...whether as figured or not, so I took it as a lesson to check next time. Also, I am assuming that the blank is NOT dried already. The ends are sealed, so this is most definately a turning block. Again, nothing wrong, just not special.
