WENGE

Mjllettia laurentii

THE TIMBER:
The sapwood is whitish, and the dark brown heartwood has fine, close, blackish veining resulting in a handsome appearance, especially on tangential surface. The luster is low, and odor and taste are not distinct. The texture is coarse, and the grain is straight to slightly wavy. The wood is reported to have good resistance to bending and to shock.

WORKABILITY:
This timber is easy to work and veneers well, but polishing is difficult.

USES:
Wenge is used for heavy construction, crossties, tool handles, furniture and cabinets. When a handsome and dark appearance is desired for flooring, wenge is especially attractive. The veneer is useful for decorative work in furniture and interior decoration. Woodworkers find wenge interesting for carving and turnery.
