ORIGIN

South Africa

INFO

Strength properties of Wenge timber are reported to vary with density, but bending strength in the air-dry condition is generally very high. Strength qualities in compression parallel to grain are exceptionally high. It is moderately hard and resistant to wearing and marring. Weight and density are very high.

APPEARANCE

The heartwood is dark brown, mostly black, with fine, closely spaced, very dark veins and white lines. The grain is fairly straight to slightly roey. The combination of white bands against the dark wood with black streaks gives Wenge a very attractive appearance. Wenge is offered in selected straight grain for a very uniform look or in mixed graining, where the flat sawn figure yields a visible “flower” look. Wenge, once aged is very uniform in colour.
