Properties

The heartwood is light grey yellow with distinct dark brown stripes. Greatly resistant to fungi, insect infestation (particular termites) and the weather. Zebrawood is extremely dependent on fashion trends although it is a very decorative wood. Degrading are the so-called “barbed-wire” lines which interrupt the black stripes. These effect the uniform appearance of the veneer.

Machining

The wood works easily with all tools. Knife blades are not dulled by the mineral deposits.

Seasoning
The wood must be very carefully dried at a controlled speed because it is very prone to checking and warping.

Finishing

When free of resin, Zebrawood varnishes and polishes well. The resin content, if too high, should be washed out before finishing.

Jointing

Zebrawood is not particularly difficult to glue. Joints with nails and screwa should be pre-drilled.
