Figured Sycamore

A very interesting wood for the surface of a humidor. Made for cigar cabinets for best cigar storage
Trade name: Zebrano Country of origin: West Africa Occurrence: Cameroon, Gabon, Congo, Equatorial Guinea, tropical lower rainforests. Uses: Veneer wood, as peeling wood for face veneer, finishing wood for furniture, luxury interiors, especially today as dashboard lining for the automotive industry. Character: The heartwood is light gray to yellow, with sharply defined dark streaks. Fairly fungus, insect and weather resistant, especially termite resistant. Although a very decorative wood, Zebrano is extremely dependent on fashion trends. The so-called „barbed wire“, jagged formations of the black stripes, has a disadvantageous effect. It affects the regular appearance of the veneers. Special features: Unlike its aesthetic appearance, untreated zebrawood has a very unpleasant inherent odor, reminiscent of butyric acid. However, this is eliminated by applying varnish. Exclusive furniture and instrument makers take advantage of this.
