DESCRIPTION

African Rosewood, also known as Bubinga, has unique qualities and is used for a variety of woodworking projects. The colour, hardness, and stability of Bubinga make it one of the most sought-after tonewoods. Its interlocked grain and pinkish-mauve hue make it a desirable choice for furniture, flooring, and other finished products. As it is not listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, it is not considered endangered and does not affect the prices of other rosewood species. Although it is more expensive, it is still a moderately priced, imported wood product.
