Recommended Posts

According to Gilmer Wood, Benge is related to Bubinga.

Benge (Africa): Other names include Mutenye and Libengi. The color is pale yellowish brown to medium brown with a faint reddish tint including black veining. This is a heavy weight wood with an interlocked and sometimes wavy grain which gives off a highly decorative appearance. Working properties are good but some difficulty may occur because of the grain pattern. This lumber is used in cabinet work, furniture, and heavy duty flooring. Also used in veneers and may be considered as a substitute for Walnut.
