Additional Information:  Cottonwood is a deciduous tree that grows up to 45 yards tall. Cottonwoods are exceptionally tolerant to flooding and erosion and are  found throughout the US especially in riparian zones. Sometimes Cottonwood trees produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. This burl wood is highly figured. The Cottonwood Burl I use comes from Northern California and has exceptional figure with lots of Birdseye.

Wenge is a tropical timber, very dark in color with a distinctive figure and a strong partridge feather pattern. The wood is heavy and hard, suitable for flooring and staircases. Several musical instrument makers employ wenge in their products. is also reported to be a suitable substitute for Hickory for the production of sporting goods. Wenge is an exotic wood with a natural growth range to be the open forests of Zaire, Cameroon, Gabon, the southern regions of Tanzania, and Mozambique. It is also found in the swampy forests of the Congo region.  This particular piece provides a nice contrast to the Cottonwood Burl.
