Figured Bubinga Sale! Outstanding Projects Start Here
African Rosewood, or Bubinga, is a beautiful hardwood from Africa's West Coast. Though not a true Rosewood, it is denser than several Rosewoods. We offer Bubinga in special Pomelle, figured, and standard. A much overlooked tone wood, Bubinga is an up and coming wood that has beautiful color and the possibility of prized figure. Colors range from reds, brown and violet tones. Interlocked grain is very similar to Amazique (which is in the same family as Bubinga). This wood can be a little bit difficult to bend.

These pieces have beautiful figure, chatoyant grain and some violet streaks! There are several that would be suitable for musical instruments, high end furniture, and other fine projects. This material is kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. It is nice, clean wood. Some of the wider pieces may have a slight cup and longer pieces may have a slight bow. This wood has open grain which can give the appearance of hairline checking, but actual checks will be noted, as well as any other abnormalities. This wood is CITES protected and ships to the USA only.
