Wood Profile


Common Names:

Zebrawood, Zebrano

Scientific Names:

Microberlinia brazzavillensis


Heartwood is a light brown or cream color with dark blackish brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra’s stripes. Depending on whether the wood is flatsawn or quartersawn, the stripes can be either chaotic and wavy (flatsawn), or somewhat uniform (quartersawn).


Has a fairly coarse texture and open pores. Grain is usually wavy or interlocked.


Heartwood is rated as durable and is also resistant to insect damage.


Has a characteristic, unpleasant smell when being worked.


Although severe reactions are quite uncommon, Zebrawood has been reported as a sensitizer. Usually most common reactions simply include eye and skin irritation.


Zebrawood tends to be fairly expensive, though usually not as prohibitively expensive as other exotics such as Ebony or Rosewood.

Other Comments:

Zebrawood is strong and stiff, with a fairly high density. Stability is below average for a tropical exotic wood. Zebrawood is frequently quartersawn and used as veneer. Other uses include: tool handles, furniture, boatbuilding, and skis.
