Bubinga is a wood that has been used for years with success. Harder and heavier than either Brazilian or Indian Rosewood, Bubinga is sometimes known as African Rosewood, although it's not a Dalbergia. It has a medium texture with interlocking grain. Bubinga varies in color from pinkish-mauve to golden blondes and oxidizes beautifully to rich darker tones over time. Because of its interlocking grain, it can be like some of the more difficult Mahogany species to bend.
