Terminalia sp. A beautiful west African species that has black stripes in the lower trunk of the tree presumably were the tree disposes of its toxins. Upper sections of the trees have white heartwood and this is called white Limba and is generally sold as a different species on the commercial market. Easy to work and slightly less dense than American walnut. Worm or pin holes are common with the species. Uses include guitar bodies, turned articles, and fancy boxes. Kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. Nice black variegated grain with a few small pin holes. A unique African species! Slight cup in the backs and sides that easily lays flat with slight pressure. Super variegations!
