Additional Information:  Tamarind is a massive leguminous tree that produces a pod-like fruit and is native to tropical Africa. This fruit is used extensively in cooking and in natural medicine. The wood is hard and strong, the sapwood (outer layer of the tree) is pale-yellow, and takes a good polish. Because the wood is strong and durable it is often used for furniture, planking on boats, and tool handles. The wood can often be spalted. Spalted wood is wood that was in the process of rotting and had a bunch of fungi in the wood. The fungi makes lines pen-like black lines in the Tamarind and results in some wild looking figure. This particular piece looks like tiger skin. The Spalted Tamarind I use came from a well-known wood turner located on the Big Island of Hawaii.

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 has figure like a Pheasant feather and provides a nice contrast to the Spalted Tamarind.
