Zebra Wood

(Microberlinia brazzavillensis)
Location:Zebrawood is a distinctive hardwood that is native to Africa and is found primarily in Cameroon, the Congo, and Gabon. It is sometimes found in pure stands along riverbanks, but growing sites are reported to be quite inaccessible.
The Wood:Although abundant, it is an expensive wood because of its difficulty to harvest and preparation necessary to bring it to market. The heartwood is a light golden- yellow with narrow-veining streaks of dark brown to black rendering its zebra stripe appearance.
