From equatorial western Africa, Zebrawood (Microberlinia brazzavillensis) 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!

All boards are kiln dried, surfaced on two sides and ready to use. There are beautifully striped patterns in the flat sawn boards with some nicely varying grain. Sapwood will have pin holes and there may be surface checking on one face. Planer skip, occasional gum pocket, and solid spalting may be present in some boards. Pieces may have a slight bow or twist.
