The name Amboyna derived from Ambon Island in Indonesia, where much of this material is originally found. Amobyna is technically not a distinct tree species, but is the name of the burl wood from any of the Pterocarpus species.
Amboyna wood is termite resistant and have a slight rose-scented when working on the wood. The wood is dense coarse, making it difficult to work and finish.
Amboyna wood is among the most expensive and sought-after of all burls. Often Amboyna wood is thinly sliced to produce an extremely decorative veneer, used for decoration and in making of fine furniture
Due to the scarcity and the natural size of the material, it is usually used for turned objects, electric guitar tops, knife/gun grips, and other small specialty wood items. But at Collectif Designs, we do not use veneer furniture. We offer furniture size single slab Amboyna wood to our client at reasonable price.
