A fine grained, heavy and hard wood that produces a truly lustrous finish. Also known as Akume, Bubinga is a rather dark wood ranging from a light red to a violet. General workability is decent except for the occasional gum pocket. Often figured with a wavy grain sprinkled with streaks of purple. Excellent choice for musical instruments, high-end furniture and millwork.
