ZEBRAWOOD - HARDWOOD EXOTIC LUMBERZEBRAWOOD 4/4"
ZEBRAWOOD LUMBER – 4/4" – FAS
Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths
Zebrawood is known for its highly figured heartwood. The heartwood is straw-like in color and distinctively marked with narrow veining or “streaks” of color ranging from dark brown to almost black. These streaks give the heartwood a zebra-stripe appearance. The sapwood is whitish in color, and virtually without feature. The wavy, interlocked grain produces a ribbon figure. The texture ranges from medium to coarse and has a high luster surface.
Since the wavy grain of zebrawood produces both hard- and soft-grained materials, it can be relatively hard to work. It is easy to saw, once seasoned. A slight to moderate blunting effect is experienced on most tools. The wood turns well, and has good sanding and gluing properties, although pre-boring may be necessary for to nailing. zebrawood can be varnished or polished to a beautiful finish.
The decorative nature of this highly figured wood makes it a popular wood for high quality veneers. Quarter-sliced veneers are used for furniture inlays, cross banding, and marquetry. It is also used to produce decorative millwork.

The following board foot calculator can be used to help you calculate your order.
Board Foot Calculator
The easiest and most common way to calculate board feet is to use a board foot calculator.
Several different board foot calculators are available online or check your app store and download to your phone.
To calculate board feet of lumber, use the following formula:
- Board Feet = Width (inches) x Thickness (inches) x Length (FEET) divided by 12.
Example – For a piece of lumber 2 inches thick, 6 inches wide and 10 feet long, you calculate board feet as follows:
Board Feet = (6 x 2 x 10) divide by 12 = 10 board feet.
If your order requires specifics, call to verify we have exactly what you need.
Example: If you order 100 board feet and need one board 8'6" that is at least 8" wide and one board 10' at least 6" wide – be sure to state exactly what you need.
