The wet savannah of Central and West Africa (Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria, the Congo Basin, Cameroon)


Heartwood from bright olive yellow to gold-brown (similar to teak). The wood darkens when allowed to dry further and takes on a yellowish color.


The veneer pattern is shot through with very attractive darker bands. Very fine veins can be seen on the cross-cut wood and form regular pore grooves on the straight cut.


As a substitute for teak in furniture making and interior fittings on ships
