Wenge Characteristics: Wenge is an exotic and imported hardwood that has heartwood that is dark brown with very close, fine, 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 the Southern regions of Tanzania, Mozambique, and the Congo region.

The wavy or curly grains produce a "fiddle-back" figure and sometimes a "black mottled" figure. The tree is Native To Figured Maple is from the Hard Maple and the Soft Maple trees.
