Wenge - Millettia laurentii
Wenge is characterized by a deep brown color with tight black stripes throughout. This is the dark wood that falls between Walnut and Ebony for quality, color and price. Wenge is coarse, hard and heavy with a straight grain. Works fairly well with machine tools but has a high blunting effect on cutting edges. Turns well.
