Overview

Often referred to as "African Rosewood," Bubinga has become a popular choice for musical instruments and fine decorative pieces. It showcases gorgeous grain patterns and a myriad of reddish brown tones with purple veining. These thin boards are machined S4S to 1/8" and 1/4" thicknesses, eliminating wear and tear on your planer. You won't have to worry about chipout, which is difficult to prevent when planing thin stock. Thin boards are ideal for edging, veneering, inlay, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock, bent laminations and whatever else your imagination can dream up!

  • Tree: Often reaches a height of over 100 feet, with trunk diameters of 36 inches.
  • Sapwood: Whitish.
  • Heartwood: Medium red-brown or red to reddish-brown with light red/purple veins.
  • Grain: Straight or interlocked.
  • Texture: Even grain ranging from fine to very fine.
  • Luster: Very lustrous.
  • Odor: Emits a pungent odor when freshly cut.
  • Movement: Dimensionally stable. Retains its shape well after machining.
  • Natural Durability: Naturally resistant to decay and termite attack.
  • Cutting Resistance: Bubinga can be readily sawn, but due to its density, a slow feed rate is advised.
  • Working characteristics: Responds well to both machine and hand tools, but cutting edges must be kept sharp.
  • Polishing: Takes an excellent polish.
  • Strength: The wood is extremely strong, with high bending and crushing strength.

I bought a board of this for shelves but decided to use it to make thresholds for my new kitchen instead. Used it for all transitions next to the cherry stained original heart pine floor and it looks terrific. The grain and color pops with just the first coat of floor finish. Just beautiful.
