Common names: Leadwood
Scientific name(s): Combretum Imberbe
Leadwood, as its vernacular name suggests is a very heavy & dense hardwood. Its fine grain makes it highly sought after for turning applications as it finishes smooth like glass. The heartwood is dark brown to black in color with varying shades being present throughout the board and often figured. With the white colored sapwood creating a contrasting border and accentuating the dark heartwood appearance it is surely a centerpiece one cannot do without.
