Bubinga is a gorgeous African hardwood lumber. Due to its fine, tight grain and its reddish brown color, Bubinga is often referred to as “ African Rosewood”. The trees can grow quite large and five foot diameter logs are not uncommon (making one piece table top slabs possible).
*Used for fine furniture and musical instruments
*Orange brown at first, oxidizing to a beautiful reddish brown
*Hard durable wood

Note: All pictures of boards that appear wet, have been wiped with denature alcohol to help show natural color. We use denature alcohol because it evaporates and does not effect the moisture content of the wood. Also, please keep in mind that the pictures below are only examples of the wood and not actual products available for sale.
