Mopani Wood - Mopani Root
Our Products: Mopani Wood - Mopani Root
Our wholesale mopani wood , taxidermy wood also called mopani root or mopani driftwood comes in a variety of shapes and is sold by the pound. Mopane wood, mopani root, or mopani driftwood can be used as taxidermy wood for mounting fish and small animals. Mopani wood or mopani root is one of southern Africa's heaviest timbers and is difficult to work because of its hardness. However, this also makes it termite resistant. For this reason it has long been used for building houses and fences, as railway sleepers and as pit-props. The termite-resistance and rich, reddish colouring also make it popular for flooring. Outside Africa, mopane is gaining popularity as a heavy, decorative wood, its uses including aquarium ornaments, bases for lamps or sculptures, and garden accents. It is also used in taxidermy crafts, and in reptile cages and in plant arrangements. Mopane is fairly oily, seasons very well with few splits or shakes, and produces instruments of a warm, rich tone.
