Specie Description: Afrormosia, also known as African teak, is known for its beautiful coloration, which ranges from golden to darker brown, gradually turning to a deep, rich, walnut-like color. Hard, heavy and strong, afrormosia is similar to teak in most technical properties, but not difficult to work with and can be glued successfully employing ordinary techniques.
The wood has traditionally been used for boat building, joinery, flooring, furniture and even decorative veneers.
These boards are surfaced to 15/16" or 1 15/16". They are also cut on the sides.
From Professor Gene Wengert, Sawing and Drying Forum technical advisor:
Afromosia has been used as a teak substitute for years. It is nearly as stable and is really not much less than teak in performance.
