From equatorial western Africa, Zebrawood is usually logged by hand with a hundred men or more on mountain slopes. One of the most appealing features of Zebra is the exotic appearance of the colorful grain. Black & golden lines make this an excellent choice for many projects. For ease in finishing, use a sanding sealer to seal the open pores. Zebra has interlocking grain that can produce beautiful iridescence in quartersawn boards! The wood is prone to checking and twisting if not properly cared for. Uses include: furniture, cabinets, architectural applications (veneer), turned articles, rifle stocks, and boxes.
