About the process

They are carefully cut to show the best grain .
The wood is turned to size then sanded through 5 different grits of sand paper.
It is then rubbed with danish oil to bring out the beautiful grain then rubbed with a bees wax mix before completing with the premium fittings

Milletia stuhlmannii, called Panga Panga in Mozambique, but should not be confused with Wenge which comes from the West Coast of Africa. Panga Panga is unique to Mozambique. Panga Panga is extraordinary in its rarity as it is only found, in commercially viable quantities, in Mozambique. Its dark colours, with rich parenchyma bands brings a touch of the exotic to finished pieces. The heartwood is dark chocolate brown with paler broad bands. At 880kg/m3 the heartwood is extremely durable. It sandpapers well and takes varnish and oils well. It is used in furniture, turning, parquet flooring and carving.
