Lovely board with wormholes and surface checks.
Ofram has been an historically important wood in Africa, sue, in part, to its universal popularity. Although its population was considered threaten, from overexpolitation in the first half of the 20th century, a concerted effort was made -- a most successful one -- to preserve the species and expand its natural range, through numerous regional and national efforts made from the '50's through the '70's, all over West and Central Africa.Ofram has a characteristic light base color, ranging from a pale yellow to a light golden brown, to a pale tan -- and sometimes muted to the point of having a greyish appearance. It often has dark brown or black overlapping highlights (as well as lighter colored patches, occasionally, ranging from yellow to orange), which is what distinguishes White Ofram (also called "Korina") from Black Ofram (same wood / same species; just differing aesthetics). Its sap is only slightly lighter in color than its heart and can sometimes be difficult to discern.Despite its medium to coarse texture and a small silica content, its typically straight grains (those sometimes irregular or interlocked) and modest hardness and density make it generally quite easy to work. Its glues and finishes well (with a moderate natural luster); its base color takes on a more golden tone under a clear lacquer finish. It is considered neither a tough or durable wood, so such finishing is recommended.
