Botanical Name:

Pericopsis, elata


West Africa, primarily Ghana and the Ivory Coast.

Also known as: 

African Teak

Afrormosia closely resembles teak and is often referred as African teak. It is a heavy and dense wood that is extremely durable and very resistant to termites and humidity. This wood has a wide range of uses both for interior and exterior applications including paneling, boat building, stairs, flooring, high-end joinery, cabinetmaking, farm implements, decks and marine piling.

Afrormosia is very uniform in color range but undergoes a large degree of color change over time with pronounced darkening from a golden tan color when freshly milled to a uniform medium brown when fully aged.
