The heartwood is a light golden-yellow with narrow veining streaks of dark brown to almost black, giving the quartered surfaces a zebra-stripe appearance. . The striping pattern can vary considerably (hence its name), and that pattern can be maximized by quarter-sawing. Zebrawood (Zebrano) may undergo some degree of color change over time, with the light straw-toned background darkening to a richer amber color, and the brown striping turning almost black. This lustrous wood has a texture ranging from medium to coarse, with a grain pattern that is usually wavy or interlocked.


Although the wood works fairly readily with hand or machine tools, it is very difficult to get a good finish from machines due to the alternative nature of the grain. A belt sander will provide a smooth finish. Gluing is satisfactory with care and it finishes well once filled.

Janka Hardness: 1575

As a flooring option, Zebrawood (Zebrano) is one of the harder woods. It is just over twenty-two percent harder than red oak, is roughly fifteen percent harder than white oak, just under four percent softer than wenge, and is about seventy-one percent that of santos mahogany's ranking of 2200.


The best way to bring out the contrasting striped pattern of Zebrawood (Zebrano) is to quarter-saw it, which also minimizes the high degree of warping that can occur when the wood is seasoned. This wood saws fairly well; but because machine- and hand-planing tears at the interlocked grain, it may sometimes be difficult to obtain a clean, smooth finish. Veneers need to be carefully handled to avoid cracking. Zebrawood has good gluing properties.


The main use for zebrano is a sliced decorative veneers for small cabinet work, flush doors, cross bandings or inlay bandings, fancy goods, marquetry and panelling. Bundles of this veneer tend to buckle unless kept under weights. Also used by turners and carvers for decorative work.
