Posted on August 30, 2013 by WoodAround

We use black walnut as a lining for these zebrawood rings. A little more about that wood:
Black walnut (Juglans nigra) is a flowering tree that grows in much of the US and produces (unsurprisingly) walnuts. This lumber is prized for its dark and strong heartwood.

Walnut trees produce an herbicide called Juglone that can kill or stunt the growth of some nearby plants and is toxic to some trees such as birch.

These new rings feature bubinga and maple. Bubinga (pronounced “boo beeng uh”) is an african hardwood prized for it dark colors and many different grain patterns. This wood is often used by luthiers (person who makes stringed instruments) and for making drums. This wood is often compared to rosewoods because of its rich color.

To follow up yesterdays kingwood ring, here is a teaser for another design. Will not be able to make many of these due to the scarcity of the wood, but here is a kingwood & maple ring that shows the sapwood transition.

The sapwood of lumber is the part that was still alive and carrying nutrients when the tree was felled. In many species such as this one the sapwood is a distinctly different color.
