Zebrawood (Microberlinia brazzavillensis) comes from West Africa and mainly from Cameroon and Gabon. It belongs to the carob plants and has a unique appearance ranging from bright yellow to deep brown stripes reminiscent of a zebra.
Its striking appearance makes it very popular. In the past it was even used in the interiors of Mercedes and Cadillacs.
The wood is hard, dense, and relatively brittle.

Finely grained wood may contain imperfections such as open knots, bark inclusions, or cracks that are typical of the species. These flaws come from the way the tree has grown and are completely natural. They can usually be filled with low-viscosity cyanoacrylate (super glue) and wood dust.
