Zebrawood Wood Veneer

cat-zebrawood.jpgWhat an appropriate name for a wood species! Few woodworkers can ignore the striking beauty of the stripes in zebrawood veneer. Zebrano trees can grow to 150 feet tall and have a trunk diameter of up to 5 feet! I've managed to get my hands on a small but affordable assortment of zebrawood veneer sheets by way of Africa.

Looking for large sheets of this species? We also offer it in AA grade paper-backed veneer, which can be applied with contact cement or any other veneer adhesive.

Common Name:
  Zebrawood, Zebrano, Zingana
Scientific Name:
  Microberlinia brazzavillensis
  Golden or creamy white field with brown/black stripes
  Africa (Gabon, Cameroon, and Congo)
  Very hard
  Coarse, open-pored
  Readily accepts stains and finishes
Did You Know:

Many cabinet makers would not consider staining zebrawood but I've seen some incredible examples of stained zebrawood projects and the results were outstanding. Don't hesitate to give it a try. You might be surprised!
