The "Ferociously" Beautiful Rengas Wood

Rengas wood is easily remembered by its other name - Borneo Rosewood. Rengas is a rare and beautiful species which originates from Southeast Asia. There's nothing much to be said about Rengas, except that it looks like a ferocious tiger. The contrast in the heartwood and sapwood can be seen very distinctly in their difference in colour, when the pale yellow of the sap wood accentuates the distinct striking dark orange of the heartwood. That's the reason that Rengas is so highly-prized as a material for exquisite furniture.
