Most Wenge comes from the interior of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire), and is floated to market on the Congo river. It is fairly hard and heavy with a medium to coarse texture. The heartwood is very dark brown with fine, nearly parallel black veining. Very rich looking when finished. Kiln-dried.
This item is for 50 board feet of Wenge. If you require specific sizes please call us, but note that size specifications may raise the price.

We have in stock a large quantity of African Blackwood or Grenadillo squares from East Africa. They are all roughsawn just as the mill produced them and range in size from approximately 1 3/8 x 1 3/8 up to 1 5/8 x 1 5/8 with lengths of between 7 and 15 inches. Some squares may have sapwood corners, burly or wild grain, occasional bug holes, or small inclusions, i.e. they have the small defects common to Blackwood. I have milled thousands of these and have produced beautiful turning squares with many of them instrument-quality. They arrive in bags weighing between 60 and 70 lbs. Buy a bag and save $$$. We will kick out any that are too defected and box up 60 pieces for $360. That is only $6 per piece. For larger quantities call us for prices.
The price below is for 60 pieces.
