Quarter sawn African Red Zebra Lumber – AKA Ebiara
Ebiara, Berlinia Bracteosa, (or Red Zebra Wood)grows in equatorial West Africa in Cameroon, Gabon, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Congo and Zaire. It is commonly called Mposso in West Africa. The wood that is produced from this tree looks like a hybrid cross of Zebra wood and Bubinga. It has the beautiful reds of Bubinga with the striking stripes of Zebra in one species! Sapwood is whitish pink with heartwood ranging from red to brown with purple veins. We are sure that you will be as excited about this species as we are! The wood works easier than Zebra or Bubinga as it is slightly less dense. Uses include boxes, cabinets, picture frames, turned articles, and other high end uses.
