Wenge

>The only time I ever turned Wenge, it was a pen, and the wood was so brittle (or my techinques so bad) that I broke it, and vowed never to used the stuff again.

Well I bought a big slab of it (2"x1'x5') to try some segmented with it. I was very surprised when cutting the beautiful dark, almost black wood, to see that the inside was almost yellow, with darker varigations in it.

How long does it take being exposed to UV light does it take to turn dark again?
