_____________________________________________________

Stinkwood or Black stinkwood (Ocotea bullata) is a dark, hard, heavy wood with an unpleasant odour that was used in the construction of buildings before it became too costly. It was often used in conjunction with yellowwood to make patterned floors. Stinkwood is still used to manufacture furniture which is a large industry in the Knysna area.
