Species Description: Wood Species

Iroko is a very tough, durable wood that has been traditionally used in a multitude of applications in its native Africa. Its golden to medium brown color, course texture and interlocked grains give it an appearance very similar to that of Teak; although it is significantly less dense, it has been utilized in Africa in many of the same functions / duties that Teak has in other parts of the world. Despite its toughness (and interlocked grains), it is generally not difficult to work; it glues and finishes well.

—————————————————

Sustainability: This species is not listed in the CITES Appendices, but is classified as “Vulnerable” on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Common Uses: Veneer, flooring, furniture, cabinetry, boatbuilding, construction, utility, turned items, and other small specialty wood items.

Comments: Iroko tends to darken with age. It is resistant to both rot and insect infestation, which makes it particularly well-suited for a variety of outdoor applications. This very tough wood has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Although its typically interlocked grains can pose challenges, at times, when working, the wood glues and finishes well
