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 reddish-brown tones with purple veining.

  • 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.

Robert J from Lake Geneva, WI Posted December 27, 2012
I purchased 1/8 x 3 x 24 curly bubinga for a table top inlay project. Color is very nice and quality of the wood is excellent but very disappointed in the figure. Not sure what curly bubinga should look like as I have never seem it before but was expecting it to look like the curly and quilted maple I normally work with and it was not. What I received may be normal, not sure.
