Origin: The Philippines
Properties: A durable and highly resistant wood, Amboyna takes three years to season fully. The ‘burr’ is a deformity in the tree trunk wood that causes the grains to form complex patterns that give a flame-like effect.
Other facts: Amboyna is especially valued as the wood’s rich colours give the complex patterns extra vibrancy. The sought after wood is frequently used in high-end furniture production.
