(Microberlinia brazzavillensis)
West Africa

Heartwood is a light brown or cream colour with dark blackish brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra’s stripes. Depending on whether the wood is flat sawn or quarter sawn, the stripes can be either chaotic and wavy (flat sawn), or somewhat uniform (quarter sawn).

The wood saws well, but can be very difficult to plane or surface due to the prevalence of interlocking grain. Tear out is common. Zebrawood glues and finishes well, though a transparent pore filler may be necessary for the large open pores which occur on both dark and light surfaces. Janka hardness of 1,830

Common Uses: Zebra wood is frequently quarter sawn and used as veneer. Other uses include: tool handles, furniture, boatbuilding, and skis.
