DESCRIPTION – Bubinga is found primarily in central Africa, especially Cameroon and the Congo. Its heartwood is a rich reddish brown color and the sapwood is a paler color. It has a grain that includes brown stripes. It can have a very intense figure where the interlocking grain creates a wavy figured. This figured called “waterfall” is full of motion and is truly impressive.
PROPERTIES – It is .a very hard, strong wood. Bubinga should be dried slowly to prevent defects. It works well with both hand and machine tools. It can be sawn easily and finishes well.
USES – Since Bubinga is so wide and hard it is very popular for high end table and bar tops. It is also used for turnings, instrument wood, flooring and veneer.
