Rustic African Bog Birch Lumber

Rustic African Bog Birch Lumber

18.2 lb | 45-5/8" x 5-15/16" x 1-15/16"

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. This lumber has been kiln dried, surfaced on two sides, and is ready to use. Colors range from defined brown heartwood to whitish tan sapwood. Boards that are labeled as "Rustic" have many surface checks or cracks. African Bog Birch works easily with sharp tools. Take advantage of this extremely unique opportunity, as this is a species we've never had and don't expect to ever have again! This piece has checks and pin holes. Please see pictures for details.
