Wenge Characteristics: Wenge is an exotic and imported hardwood with dark brown heartwood with very close, delicate, almost black veins. The texture is coarse, and the grain is straight to slightly wavy. When freshly cut, the heartwood of Wenge is a yellow-brown color, but then in a few months, it darkens to a deep, uniform brown, almost black, with alternate layers of light and dark tissue, forming a decorative figure. The tree is Native to Tanzania's Southern regions, Mozambique, and the Congo region.
The buckeye tree is medium-sized, reaching less than 100 feet with a trunk diameter of up to three feet. Its wood is relatively light in weight as well as color. When burl is part of its composition, dark areas are also prominent. The wood also has a unique texture. Fine dust, rather than shavings, is produced when cutting tools are applied. This characteristic lends itself to a smooth finish. However, it is also very porous. So, extra amounts of polish or finish material are needed to protect the finish.
Buckeye Burl is an unusual species. Colors range from blue-black to golden whites with a nice mixture in between. Buckeye is a challenging and expensive wood to mill. When milling, some of the obstacles faced are rocks, sand, dirt, bullets, and rattlesnakes. Yes, rattlesnakes inside the voids in the burl! The Base of the tree (root wad) underground produces 90% or more of the burl. The burls can range from 50 pounds to several thousand in their natural state. When converting a burl into usable wood, there is usually 60-75% waste.
