We wanted to share the top 5 Reasons to Love Wenge Lumber.
1. Visually Striking:
Wenge is very visually striking in it’s chocolatey brown coloring. It also provides great contrast when constructed along with lighter and contrasting woods.
2. Durable and Stable:
Wenge is extremely hard and dense. This toughness is the reason it is such a durable wood. This toughness is also why Wenge is popular for flooring and furniture because it will stand the test of time.
3. Quartersawn is very vertical/straight and consistent in appearance
Having consistent and straight lumber to work with makes construction and design much easier, so Wenge is easy to work with when it comes to appearance and grain.
4. Flatsawn has beautiful ‘cathedral’ boards
‘Cathedral” Grain is a vertical arch which can provide great visual interest and can add to the beauty of any finished product. These can be used to give great visual interest in addition to the striking color of Wenge.
5. Great for flooring, furniture, cabinets, and millwork:
Wenge is extremely popular for Flooring, Furniture, Cabinets, and Millwork. The reason for the popularity is because of it’s combination of durability, coloring, and available textures depending on how it is sawn. It is a great wood to have as part of any design.
