Albizia, also known as Tanga Tanga, grows in tropical Africa. The heartwood is a golden brown often with bands of lighter and darker shades, colour tends to darken with age. The contrasting sapwood is pale yellow. It works easily and turns, glues and finishes well.
Our albizia spindle blanks have been planed on all four sides, ensuring they are both square and straight ready for turning. This will save a great deal of time if a square is to be included in the turning for furniture legs.
Albizia dust can be an irritant to the respiratory system. When working with this wood please use proper protective masks and dust extraction.
