Wenge (Millettia laurentii)

Distribution:

Availability:



Readily Available

Appearance

Wenge has a distinctive look with a medium brown heartwood filled with nearly black streaks throughout. The grain is straight and extremely coarse.

Workability

This is not a wood species for the faint of heart. It is extremely difficult to work with hand or power tools and it will dull edges quickly. It doesn’t even sand well because of the changing densities in the wood. The pores are huge and require filling in order to achieve a level finish.

Uses

Wenge is used for furniture, turnings, and musical instruments.

Additional Comments

The slivers from this wood are plentiful and nasty. They often get lodged in the skin and can go septic. Wearing gloves can be helpful but not 100% foolproof.
