Combretum imberbe. Air and kiln dried.
All dimensions shown are in inches (length x square).
This timber is the hardest wood in our catalogue, so hard that Africans made blades for their hoes before metal became available.
So a timber for sharp tools (are any not?) which will turn and sand to a lustrous finish and accept all finishing products but does not absorb oils too well.The heartwood is dark brown in colour with blackish streaks.
