African Bengi, or Anzem, (Copaifera religiosa) is a unique species from West Africa that we have been very fortunate to obtain.   It can also be called N’tene wood.  Anzem wood works and glues well with little difficulty.  It is often used for fine furniture, figured veneer, decorative plywood, cabinets, flooring, stairs, jewelry boxes, humidors, and other fine articles. Colors range from red to rich, warm brown with pinks, black and purple. Fine lines and interesting patterns are present.  Anzem trees grow in Western Africa primarily in Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Gabon, and Zaire. The wood’s density is .58 to .64 (similar to American Black Walnut and California Claro Walnut). The boards in this special are kiln dried and have been carefully surfaced on two sides so that they are free of planer skip.  The figured grade boards have very small gum pockets (voids) with usually 0-5 per face.  The standard grade boards do not have gum pockets so if you can’t work with the voids this is your best choice.

Grading is as follows:

Figured: Light to medium figure with great color.

Standard: Nice clean boards with great color.
