Griffin Exotic Wood


Bubinga (figured) & unfigured

Bubinga is an attractive wood from Africa, and much comes from the country of Cameroon.  It can be a very large tree.  Bubinga can have various kinds of figure (or none).  The pieces below have pictures to help explain the types of figure being offered. (Those not marked as figured are not considered figured). The specific gravity is about .88 and the wood works nicely.   Colors shown are as accurate as possible, and are a good idea of what these pieces look like in natural light.  Sapwood can be an exciting accent, and the sapwood usually has the same figure as the rest of the piece and holds together well. 

unless specified otherwise.

This large bowl blank in figured bubinga is 3 7/8 x 9.5 x 9.75 inches and is dried. It is rare to find any exotic wood on the market that is dried over 2 inches thick. Pieces such as this thick take 5-6 years to dry all the way through. This is piece A . Note how the figure catches the light in the second photo (click this picture to see it). The reds in this piece are deeper then the photo appears. No visible defects and the two faces look the same. The figure is very similar everywhere. It is a mix of waterfall and pomele.
