Muninga / Kiaat
Also known as: Kiaat
Botanical Name: Pterocarpus angolensis
Origin: Central and southern Africa
Description: Not commonly available these days, the odd log of Muninga is occasionally sliced into veneer. It is a close botanical relative and quite similar to other African Padauk varieties but is brown and red rather than all over red. This attractive veneer is mainly used for panelling and high class furniture.
