If there's any exotic wood that makes a nice touch in both small jewelry boxes and large furniture pieces, it's wenge. Wenge is a natural for striking inaly and contrast with lighter woods, or as the main panels of a table, desk, headboard, etc. The uniform, nearly black color makes it an extraordinary wood that retains color over the years.
Boards are rough sawn
Wenge heartwood is medium brown, sometimes with a reddish or yellowish hue, with nearly black streaks. Upon application of a wood finish (particularly an oil finish) the wood can become nearly black.
Texture is rather coarse; straight grain; hard and heavy. Works fairly well with machine tools but has a high blunting effect on cutting edges. Turns well. Difficult to glue if resinous.
