Nauclea diderrichii

Nauclea diderrichii of the family Saxifragaceae

my samples:
NOTE: these pics were all taken in very bright incandescent lighting ("soft white" at 2700K)
colors will vary under other lighting conditions

A little piece cut from one of the larger pieces somewhere on this page because I needed the end grain update, which I had neglected to do previously

END GRAIN UPDATE from directly above

small plank and end grain --- color is extremely accurate; the end grain shot clearly shows the diffuse porous nature of the wood and the lack of distinct growth rings

plank and closeup

end grain a close-closeup to show grainyness --- the closeup color is too green

a couple of turning sticks and a closeup --- actual wood is just a shade darker than what's shown in the pics but not quite as dark as the rest of the samples on this page.

end grain closeup from one of the sticks directly above --- color is a little too green

eBay pic of the plank in my first sample --- the washed out color is not correct; my pics show the real color
