Moabi | African Pearwood (Baillonella toxisperma)
Available in Logs & Customised Form
Rated as very durable; good insect resistance. Heartwood is a rather uniform pinkish brown, sometimes darker reddish brown. Color tends to darken with age. Sapwood is grayish brown. Figured grain patterns are also seen, such as pommele, quilted, mottled, and beeswing. Easy to work with hand or machine tools, though figured wood is much more prone to chipping and tearout in machining operations. Turns, glues, and finishes well. Responds well to steam bending.
