Details

Amazakoue (Guibourtia ehie) has varying shades of yellowish to reddish brown with darker brown, gray, or black stripes. Moderately wide sapwood is a pale yellow, clearly demarcated from heartwood. Grain is straight to slightly interlocked, medium to coarse texture with a moderate luster. Overall a fairly easy wood to work, contains silica and can therefore dull cutters prematurely. Also, if the grain is interlocked, or if there is other figure present in the wood, planing and other machining operations may be troublesome and cause tearout. Turns, glues and finishes well. Common uses include veneers, furniture, cabinetry, turned objects, and musical instruments.
