Zebrawood Lumber Characteristics
Available in 8 foot up to 16 foot in widths from 4 inches to 12 inches and wider.
Zebrawood saws well, but can be very difficult to plane or surface due to the prevalence of interlocking grain. Tearout 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.
