Iroko (Milicia excelsa, M. regia)

Pricing:



Moderately Expensive

Hardness:

1260

Janka

Distribution:



Tropical Africa

Availability:



Readily Available

Appearance

The heart wood ranges from yellow to a golden brown with a clearly marked pale yellow sapwood.

Workability

Fairly easy to work with although the interlocked grain can cause tearout during surface preparation operations. There are also deposits of calcium carbonate present sometimes which have a significant dulling effect of tool edges.

Uses

Often used as veneer, flooring, furniture, cabinetry, boatbuilding, and turned items.

Additional Comments

Given the high prices of Genuine Teak, Iroko could be considered a low-cost alternative as it somewhat resembles Teak.
