Collection: Birch, African Bog

African Bog Birch is a historic hardwood that sat in peat bogs in West Africa for 1,000 years or more. During that time, it acquired a lot of minerals which darkened the wood and made it much more dense. This density rivals species like Bolivian Rosewood and Bocote, producing a very high polish in finished woodworking projects. Colors range from defined brown heartwood to whitish tan sapwood. African Bog Birch works easily with sharp tools, making it ideal for any of your fine woodworking projects. Take advantage of this extremely unique opportunity, as this is a species we've never had and don't expect to ever have again!
