LIMBA, BLACK

Terminalia superba

THE TIMBER:
The color of limba is either uniformly creamy pale yellow or grayish-brown with irregular streaks of dark brown or black. The sapwood is not distinct from the heartwood. The texture is moderately coarse. The odor is mild. The luster is high and satiny, and the grain is straight to irregular or interlocked. Splinters can cause skin inflammation.

WORKABILITY:
Limba is easily worked with hand and machine tools. It has a tendency to split in nailing or screwing operations. It takes stain readily and polishes well after filling. Its gluing properties are satisfactory. The veneering characteristics are very good.

USES:
Limba is used for light construction work, interior cabinetry, simulated traditional furniture, plywood and decorative moldings. The figured dark-colored heartwood is quite attractive for decorative plywood paneling.
