Botanical Name: (Guibourtia demeusei)
Bubinga is also know as African Rosewood but is not a Rosewood. This is a wonderful tone wood in every respect. It is as hard as the rosewoods, but has a finer texture with no pores to fill. It bends easily and holds it's shape. The brownish-purple color is close enough to rosewood to look familiar.Some of the Waterfall and Pomelle figured pieces are truly spectacular. Bubinga is a wood that deserves more recognition.
Bubinga will be on CITES starting in January 2017. We will no longer be able to ship this wood Internationally.
The current sets we have feature a beautiful figure and color.
