Wenge Thin

Wenge is one of the darkest woods we offer!

What colour is Wenge? This beautiful wood has a distinctive look with a medium brown heartwood filled with black streaks throughout. The grain is straight and extremely coarse. It is often used as an alternative for projects requiring a dark wood like Ebony. Where does Wenge come from? This hard, durable wood is from Central Africa.

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. All that to be said, the end results are more than worth it! Wenge is used for furniture, turnings, and musical instruments. The slivers from this wood are plentiful and nasty. They often get lodged in the skin and can go septic. Be sure to wear gloves to help prevent these slivers!

Just what I expected

Nice board

I prefer Wenge with a fairly straight grain and that is what I got. Another good purchase here.

Never a miss

This is my 2nd time ordering this Wenge and it's always perfect, to a concerning degree. Not sure what wizardry goes on there.
