Iroko Wood Lumber
Iroko Wood Lumber – Iroko heartwood is usually yellow to golden or medium brown, its color tends to darken over time. Pale yellow sapwood is clearly demarcated from the heartwood. Iroko is used in boatbuilding, domestic flooring, furniture, veneer and cabinetwork. Iroko is very dense, durable and is resistant to both rot and insect attack.
Workability: Iroko Wood Lumber is easy to work, except for its interlocked grain, which may cause some tearout during surfacing operations. Deposits of calcium carbonate are sometimes present, which can have a significant dulling effect on cutters. Iroko glues and finishes well.
