Product Details

Wenge is an African hardwood with exceptionally dark heartwood. An interesting black streaking is usually present throughout the surface. It is dark enough to be used as a substitute for ebony. While it may blunt sharp tool edges due to its strength and hardness, these properties also make it ideal for flooring, tool handles and furniture. Wenge averages 57 lbs per cubic foot, making it a fairly heavy wood.

Because this is a natural material, the color and pattern will vary slightly from piece to piece. Please see the thickness tolerance below and note that thickness will change based on conditions like humidity.

Thinner boards take more time and labor to produce; therefore, while the 1/16" pieces are thinner, they are the same price as the 1/8" pieces.
