Iroko Iroko
18 August 2014



The whitish to pale yellow sapwood is clearly distinct from the yellow-brown heartwood, which matures to a deeper brown.


Iroko is a fine-grained wood. The fiber usually grows in alternating spirals, sometimes it is irregular. The scattered, coarse pores, which are clearly visible, form a plaited web in cross section, while giving the wood a striped appearance in radial section.


Owing to its high level of resistance to acids and bases, this wood is ideal for building chemical containers and laboratory tables. Other areas of application: woodwind instruments, wagon and shipbuilding, parquet and stairs, furniture, outdoors for doors, windows and gates, and for parkbenches or churche pews. Iroko is used as a substitute for oak and teak.
