Amboina Burl


Southeast Asia, Cameroon, Nigeria


Color variations from orange-yellow to deep red


Closely spaced rows of grains; the veins are rather coarse and scattered; a large number of burls make the wood extremely valuable. A classic: radiates depth and vigor; Amboina is considered to be one of the most elegant and decorative burls in the world.


Very high-quality interior finishing, veneer for exclusive furniture, in solid form for tobacco pipes and objects of art.


Did you know ...

... that managed forests, thanks to their high proportion of young, strong, growing trees, enable CO2 to be extracted?

... that an old, unmanaged forest produces as much CO2 through processes of decomposition and decay as it stores, and that therefore an unmanaged forest contributes nothing to reducing global CO2?
