Wengé has an approximately 5cm gray-white splinter, in fresh cut yellow-brown with a year-long core that has a greenish glow. In the case of sunlight, the tree becomes lighter than other varieties. The tree is very durable, strong, incredibly elastic, wear-resistant with high impact strength. Machining is energy-intensive. Stitches and screws can break the tree and gluing is difficult.
