Rosewood, found in various species worldwide, boasts a diverse array of colors, ranging from ebony-like dark shades to rich red tones. This versatility makes it an excellent choice for furniture and decorative pieces. The origin of the rosewood significantly influences its strength and hardness, with Indian and African rosewood standing out as some of the hardest varieties available.
Ebony remains a prized and expensively exotic wood due to its rarity. The trees are small and slow-growing, resulting in limited quantities of long, defect-free boards, making such pieces highly sought after. Its distinctive jet-black heartwood, occasionally graced with streaks of browns, golden browns, and greys, along with its exceptional strength, durability, and density, render ebony universally coveted.
Black Walnut wood
Black Walnut wood, cherished by craftsmen, is known for its rich dark hue, hardness, density, and fine grain. It lends itself to a silky smooth polish and features a color spectrum, ranging from creamy white in the sapwood to deep chocolate in the heartwood.
Zebrawood is tough, durable and visually striking West African wood. Its heartwood base color ranges from tan to a dull pale yellow, to a muted off-white and almost gray hue. Depending on its origin and growth conditions, it is decorated by dark brown or almost black striping and hence its name zebrawood. The striping is typically long and fairly uniform when the wood is quarter sawn, but wavy and erratic when flat sawn. Sapwood is easily distinguishable by its lack of striping and is usually a light, pale white color.
Maple wood (Latin name: Acer) comes from deciduous maples, which are found in about 200 different species in Eurasia and North America. Maple wood is mainly used in construction and furniture.
Mountain maple and curly maple are precious woods and one of the medium weight types of wood. It is hard and resistant but at the same time elastic.
While mountain maple wood is white to yellowish in color, curly maple wood is reddish in color.
