Bubinga is an exotic wood from Central Africa. It is initially pinky-red, but darkens with age. It is popular for tool handles, decorative veneers, turnery, boatbuilding, knife handles, and can be used as an alternative to rosewood. Tigerwood is a durable and dramatic exotic wood species known for its dark vein stripes and beautiful deep reddish-orange background. Projects made from tigerwood are dimensionally stable and hold up well. Tigerwood is known for its beautiful colors — ranging from light orange all the way down to a deep reddish-brown — and striping, which varies from fine lines to bold strokes. It’s highly lustrous surface makes it look almost oily. Walnut is a popular choice for woodworking; it has a fine texture and works extremely well with hand and power tools. Walnut is prized for use in furniture, cabinets, cutting boards, and a multitude of other projects. It is a popular choice for turning and carving as well.
