The Beauty of Wenge Planed Timber
Imported from West Africa, Wenge timber is a unique hardwood of very dark brown, with veins which seem almost black alternating with pale bands. Ordering Wenge timber cut to size from Timbersource is perfect if you need wood for furniture making, although it is also heavily utilised in turnery and joinery. When ordering Wenge timber from Timbersource, you may select between widths of around 100 - 200mm and lengths of around 2m - 3m.
This is a wood that turns well, but it may be difficult to saw and machine, quickly blunting cutting edges. It may be difficult to glue, and will need to be pre-bored for nailing. However, Wenge timber is extremely strong and stiff, with moderate hardness and strong bending properties. While it does dry slowly, very little distortion occurs during the process. The heartwood is thoroughly durable and strongly resistant to both impregnation and termite attack, while the sapwood is moderately resistant.
