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.

    Nice Pieces

    A little planer damage on 1 side of 1 board but has excellent grain on that piece so I'm glad it was included.

    Huge grain. Very ugly.

    This piece of wood should have been culled. The grain makes it unusable for any project. It was against my better judgement to order wood via the Internet, but I thought I would try it. I won't do it again.
