ZEBRANO – SAFARI ::::: Made from African Zebrano Zebra Wood and Golden Iroko by Bazza.
Stands at 10 inch high and 4 inch deep. Skimmed the edges on a palm router and sanded down to 0000 grade steel wool and blessed with a dash of Danish oil.
Loosely based on Steve Goods methods but pumped up on steroids. This is my first time with Zebrano and I love it ! Great timber to work with and I now have loads of ideas for this stuff.. Expensive but rewarding .
Good luck to you all for 2015 Regards Bazza.

Zebrawood is considered a threatened species in its native habitat. Its fast-growing popularity in the West has resulted in some reforestation efforts, but these are not keeping up with the pace of harvesting. The extensive use of zebrawood in Prada’s flagship Manhattan store in 2002 resulted in protests from environmentalists and a promise from Prada never to use wood from endangered forests again.
