Given the high cost of real Teak, Iroko might be viewed as a cost-effective substitute. The wood is solid, long-lasting, and has an appearance that is similar to Teak.
This wood is commonly used for veneer, flooring, furniture, cabinets, boatbuilding, turned goods, and other tiny specialty wood products.
Iroko is an imported hardwood that sells for a reasonable price. A veneer is also available for purchase and is reasonably priced.
The hue of heartwood is generally yellow to golden to medium brown, and it darkens over time. The sapwood is distinguishable from the heartwood by its pale yellow colour.
