From equatorial western Africa, Zebrawood is usually logged by hand with a hundred men or more on mountain slopes. It is arduous, back breaking work. Trees can be quite large with diameters of 3-5 ft. and straight trunks of 40-60 ft. before the first limbs. When Zebra logs are cut, they are almost always quarter sawn to show the fine Zebra stripes in the lumber. This colorful grain is one of the most appealing features of Zebra wood. The black & golden lines make this an excellent choice for many projects. Interlocking grain can produce beautiful iridescence in quarter sawn boards! For ease in finishing use a sanding sealer to seal the open pores. Uses include: furniture, cabinets, architectural applications (veneer), turned articles, musical instruments, rifle stocks, boxes and more! Kiln dried. Surfaced on two sides. Sapwood may have pin holes (look for dots in the picture). Expect a 1" end check or surface check on most boards. Some spalting in the sapwood with a few pin holes. 1/2" twist.
