Zebrawood (Microberlinia brazzavillensis) has a light golden yellow heartwood with streaks of dark brown to black. The stripes can be chaotic and wavy (flatsawn), or somewhat uniform (quartersawn). Zebrawood has a medium to course texture, with a lustrous surface that works well with hand and machine tools and finishes well. Zebrawood is used in cabinetry, furniture, inlay, marquetry, paneling, wood sculpture, carving, and for turning specialty items like pens, tool handles and wine stoppers. Take care and use sharp tools when machining or turning these “hard,” diagonally cut exotics.
Features:

  • Premium exotic species are selected for color and prominent grain and then processed by cutting on an angle to accentuate the grain patterns
  • Intricate designs emerge as these are turned – swirls, chevrons, arches and stripes
  • Turns well with good polishing and finishing qualities
  • Native to West Africa
Specifications:
  • Thickness: 3/4"
  • Width: 3/4"
  • Length: 5"

Notes:
  • Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.
