An exuberant wenge line defines a wild border between the pomele eucalyptus and curly birch in the top. The base is from solid sapele.
Eucalyptus covers many different trees (over 500) originally from Australia, and are now grown in temperate climates all over the world. The wood is widely used in furniture and construction with the color varing widely from species to species. Jarrah is a unique wood from Australia with a range in color from pink-reds to a rich red color with occasional black veins.
Figure or curl is a natural occurrence and can be found in a variety of woods. The surface of the wood shows a linear, wavy pattern that is particularly striking when finished. In some forms it is a hereditary wave pattern in the wood fibers, in others it is an effect of wood fibers being compressed by a change in the direction of growth, such as at a fork forming a new trunk or limb. Figured wood has long been used in musical instrument bodies.
Commonly used in boat-building because of its resistance to decay, Sapele has a dark reddish-brown tone. Quarter-sawn boards demonstrate a strong ribbon pattern and the surface looks and feels much like mahogany.
Wenge is an African wood with a regular, closely spaced grain of dark brown to black color. It is both hard and heavy and works well as either an accent wood or a primary material.
