IROKO | In Depth

This can easily be mistaken for Teak, and is often referred to as 'African Teak'.
It is a much cheaper option to Burmese Teak it does have a much stronger yellowish tone.
Again, like most African woods, it’s reasonably hard and good to work with, as well as being durable. Common uses include boat building, cabinet making and wood flooring.
