Tamboti Spirostachys Africana aka African Cocobolo or African Sandalwood
Tamboti is a hard wood; lustrous and with a powerful, persistent, and pleasant scent sweeter than that of sandalwood. This pleasant odor will last long after the wood is cut. A piece of furniture made of it can scent a large room for a long time. Because of its limited quantities, and the defectiveness of the tree, it is a rare wood and therefore sought for small fancy articles and high grade furniture .
Typical Uses: .Used mostly for carving, luxury furniture, turnery and curios.
Source Region: South African Lowveld and Swaziland.
