Zebrano Veneered Panels & Jointed Veneer
Zebrano is also called allen ele, allene, amouk, ele, enuk-enug, izingana, nkomi, sebrano, sebratra, zingana, zinganga and African zebrawood
It is found in West Africa - mainly in Gabon and Cameroon - and gregarious, sometimes found in pure stands along riverbanks.
Zebrano sapwood is up to 10cm wide and whitish in colour, while the heartwood is light golden-yellow or pale yellow-brown in colour, with narrow-veining or streaks of dark brown to almost black, giving a zebra-stripe appearance that varies considerably.
Zebrano veneer grain is usually interlocked or wavy, yielding a ribbon figure, the texture is typically medium to coarse, and the wood is lustrous.
