Advantages and disadvantages

Advantages of African Zebra Wood

The advantage of zebra wood is that the texture is natural and wonderful;

1. In the natural wood color of Wujinmu, the golden and black curves are in front of you, the color is eye-catching and very fluid, and any one of the cut surfaces can clearly express the beauty of the wood grain. Moreover, Wujinmu has a low material extraction rate, hard wood and difficult processing. Therefore, every product made with Wujinmu is full of strong natural flavor.

 

2, Wujinmu can reach 130cm, the growth environment is special, and it grows in the hilly area with an average elevation of over 1600 meters. The soil surface is rich in mineral resources. The roots of the trees are deep into the mineral layer, absorbing nutrients and water, so the wood contains metallic feel.

 

3, able to go hand in hand with the wood grain, Wujinmu's wooden structure is also very good. Wu Jinmu, known as the "ninth kind of redwood", is not a name. As long as you use a hand to rub a weight, you will find that Wujinmu is much more sinking than other woods. The wood has a high hardness and density, and its wood structure is similar to that of wenge in mahogany. The pores of the wood are fine, and the wood grain is intertwined and forms a distinctive texture. [1]

 

Disadvantages of African big zebra wood

1. Like other solid wood furniture, Wujinmu has a beautiful pattern and good hardness, but it also has fatal defects. The change of water content makes it easy to deform and crack, and can not adapt to the environment of too cold or overheating, dry and humid. . Therefore, special care must be taken to avoid excessively cold or hot environments to avoid damage to the wood.

2, Wujinmu is not only unique in texture, but also irritating in temper. In the process of drying and processing, it often bursts on its own. Because it is designed according to the condition of cracking, not mass production, each piece is unique and has the meaning of collection.

3, if Wujinmu is not handled properly or the process is not closed, the wood will be prone to decay for a long time, and the color of the wood will fade.

4, staggered wood, rough wood muscles; dry shrinkage. It has good processability, but the wood is prone to decay and the color of the wood will fade.
