Originating from Central Africa, Wenge is an exotic wood species. Thanks to its natural oils and hard and dense structure, wedge wood achieves such durability without any need for this lumber to be treated with physical or chemical processes. Wenge wood showcases deep and rich chocolate brown colours that are interwoven with black lines. The grain of this wood is straight, predictable and pleasing to the eye. Lumber from Wenge wood exhibits very uniform colour, and over just a few months after cutting its entire surface slowly shifts to darker deep chocolate/black brown hues.
