What kind of wood? Kevazingo, which is better known as bubinga or guibourtia, is a reddish type of wood found in West Africa. Still doesn’t tell me much. Some trees in Gabon are more than 500 years old and they can be considered sacred by local people. But timber from kevazingo is highly valued in parts of Asia, where it is used to make high-end furniture and music instruments. The government banned the export of kevazingo in 2018 in an effort to protect the country's resources. More about this @ Why did 300 containers of precious timber go missing?
