Wenge, a tree of Central Africa, has been a favorite of woodworkers for decades. Usually pronounced WHEN-gii or WHEN-ghay, it has excellent strength and hardness properties and is often a substitute for Ebony. When steamed, this wood has a black color and when conventionally dried, has dark, rich browns with a slight red hue. It is traditionally used in veneer, paneling and inlay. Having this available in slab form is rare and unique. This live edge slab measures 13.32′ long x 34.65″ wide x 3.15″ deep.
