The name is derived from Ambon Island in Indonesia, where much of the figured wood was believed to have been initially exported. Amboyna was among the most expensive and sought-after of all burls, and was frequently sold as veneer or as small turning/craft blanks. Some suppliers specify “Red Amboyna” for material with the typical rich reddish brown heartwood, or “Golden Amboyna” for pieces with lighter yellowish brown colouration. It’s not unusual for pieces to contain sharply contrasting yellowish sapwood.
Amboyna was commonly used for fine furniture, turned objects, electric guitar tops, knife/gun grips, and other small speciality wood items.
