Afzelia Xlay figure
Afzelia wood can have incredible
figure, and the most outstanding and rare is the xlay figure as seen above.
It looks like raised alligator skin, which really shows best when the surface
is very highly polished. No other wood figure looks quite like it,
and it is very hard to get, being only a tiny percentage of the afzelia
wood available. Not difficult to work, and the pieces below are dried.
We have looked over 3 years to get this prized wood at a price that is
reasonable. Note that the figure is normally wide on one side (the side
you see pictured) and gets smaller on the other side. Sometimes the other
side looks like tiny bubbles. Thinner pieces show more of the wide figure
on both parallel sides. We
are no longer able to do business with our supplier of this wood and we
expect to run out.
