TANGANICA

Mainly known as Anigre. It is considered a tropical hardwood with a clear, cylindrical bole to 80 feet (24 m). It can grow to heights of 180 feet (55 m) with typical trunk diameters ranging from 36 to 48 inches (910 to 1,220 mm). Anigre has a medium texture with closed pores similar to maple. Growth rings aren’t always well-defined, and the wood can be rather plain-looking; though certain figure is occasionally present, such as curly or mottled grain. The sapwood and the heartwoodare not usually distinguishable. The heartwood is a light yellowish-brown, sometimes with a pinkish hue. Color tends to darken with age. The quarter figured veneer has become a popular choice for furniture, cabinetry, and decorative architectural applications. It is said to have a faint odor similar to Cedar. In its untreated form Anigre is susceptible to termite and fungi attacks and generally has low durability. Anigre is usually considered easy to work with hand and power tools, although depending on the origin of the wood it can have a high silica content which can dull wood working tools quickly.

Anigre is often found in tropical East and West Africa, primarily in Cameroon but also in Angola, Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Uganda and Zaire.Exportation from Cameroon is actually prohibited by local laws.

MAHOGANY

Mahogany Honduras is a wood considered by most to be the one true mahogany.
As such, it is often called “genuine mahogany”.
Heartwood reddish, pinkish, salmon colored, or yellowish when fresh;
Deepening with age to deep rich red or brown; distinct from the Yellowish or Whitish sapwood.
Luster high and golden; texture rather Fine to coarse; grain straight to roey, wavy, or curly,
ofteh with an Attractive figure; odor and teste not distinctive.

Mahogany is a commercially important lumber prized for its beauty, durability, and color, and used for paneling and to make furniture, boats, musical instruments and other items. The leading importer of mahogany is the United States, followed by Britain;

In the 17th century, the buccaneer John Esquemeling recorded the use of mahogany or cedrela on Hispaniola for making canoes: "The Indians make these canoes without the use of any iron instruments, by only burning the trees at the bottom near the root, and afterwards governing the fire with such industry that nothing is burnt more than what they would have..."

The wood first came to the notice of Europeans with the beginning of Spanish colonisation in the Americas. A cross in the Cathedral at Santo Domingo, bearing the date 1514, is said to be mahogany, and Phillip II of Spain apparently used the wood for the interior joinery of the Escorial Palace, begun in 1584. However, caoba, as the Spanish called the wood, was principally reserved for ship building, and it was declared a royal monopoly at Havana in 1622. Hence very little of the mahogany growing in Spanish controlled territory found its way to Europe.

MADRONA BURL

Pacific Madrone grows primarily in the coastal lowlands from British Columbia all the way to a few isolated groves in Mexico. It is most commonly found west of the Cascades in Washington and Oregon. Madrone can be beautiful but not with out issues.

Madrone burl is highly prized as a decorative veneer, while Madrone lumber is a very dense and finely-grained hardwood that’s similar in appearance to fruitwoods. The wood burns long and hot, and as a result it is also used for firewood and charcoal.

Madrone’s botanical species name, menziesii, is in honor of Scottish botanist Archibald Menzies, who discovered the tree in 1792 during the George Vancouver Expedition—his name is also applied to Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii).

SUCUPIRA

This South American wood has a character similar to Rosewood or Teak–it’s very hard, has a close porous structure, and is seldom figured. Flat cut veneer produces that characteristic cathedral or looped grain effect.

Applications:

Sucupira is used for general construction, boatbuilding (frames), cross ties, flooring, tool handles, furniture, and cabinets.

The hearwood is red to brown-red with light yellow lines. It is most resistant to fungi, insect attack and the weather. The wood is hard, heavy, tough and dense and has a closed porous structure.

ZIRICOTE

Central America from Mexico to Columbia, here and there in the south of the USA ( Florida) and Brazil.
Trees with usable log lengths of more than 5 m and 30 cm in diameter are extremely rare.
Ziricote is the heaviest wood in the group comprising more than 250 different species of Cordia. A truly unique-looking wood, Ziricote has very few imitators; perhaps only the occasional piece of Rosewoods exhibits the same spider-webbing grain figure.

SCANDINAVIAN BIRCH

Birches have spiritual importance in several religions, both modern and historical. In Celtic cultures, the birch symbolises growth, renewal, stability, initiation and adaptability because it is highly adaptive and able to sustain harsh conditions with casual indifference. Proof of this adaptability is seen in its easy and eager ability to repopulate areas damaged by forest fires or clearings.

The silver birch tree is of special importance to the Swedish city of Umeå. In 1888, the Umeå city fire spread all over the city and nearly burnt it down to the ground, but some birches, supposedly, halted the spread of the fire. To protect the city against future fires, it was decided to plant silver birch trees all over the city. Umeå later adopted the unofficial name of "City of the Birches (Björkarnas stad)".

"Swinging" birch trees was a common game for American children in the nineteenth century. American poet Lucy Larcom's "Swinging on a Birch Tree" celebrates the game.[19] The poem inspired Robert Frost, who pays homage to the act of climbing birch trees his more famous poem, "Birches". Frost once told "it was almost sacrilegious climbing a birch tree till it bent, till it gave and swooped to the ground, but that's what boys did in those days".

BIRDSEYE MAPLE

Bird's eye maple may be expensive, up to several times the cost of ordinary hardwood. It is used in refined specialty product. Items made with this wood tend to be more expensive not only because the wood is more costly but because it is harder to work. When working with bird's eye wood, it is advisable to take care in what tools are used, so as to prevent grain tearout. It grows mostly in northern parts of North America.

Bird's eye is a type of figure that occurs within several kinds of wood, most notably in hard maple. It has a distinctive pattern that resembles tiny, swirling eyes disrupting the smooth lines of grain. It is somewhat reminiscent of a burl, but it is quite different: the small knots that make the burl are missing.

It is not known what causes the phenomenon. Research into the cultivation of bird's eye maple has so far discounted the theories that it is caused by pecking birds deforming the wood grain or that an infecting fungus makes it twist. However, no one has demonstrated a complete understanding of any combination of climate, soil, tree variety, insects, viruses or genetic mutation that may produce the effect.
