Heartwood is a light brown or cream color with dark blackish brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra’s stripes. Depending on whether the wood is quarter sawn or flat sawn , the stripes can be either chaotic and wavy (flatsawn), or somewhat uniform (quartersawn).as a fairly coarse texture and open pores. The grain is generally wavy or interlocked.

Rot Resistance: Heartwood is rated as durable and is also resistant to insect damage.

Workability: The wood saws well, but can be very difficult to plane or surface due to the prevalence of interlocking grain. Tear out is common. Zebrawood glues and finishes well, though a transparent pore filler may be necessary for the large open pores which occur on both dark and light surfaces.

Common Uses: Zebrawood is frequently quarter sawn and used as veneer. Other uses include: tool handles, furniture, boatbuilding, and skis.

Janka Hardness: 1,830 lbf (8,160 N)
