The Beauty of Iroko Planed Timber
Iroko timber is imported at grade FAS from West Africa, and is usually kilned, drying from yellow to dark brown. A popular wood for exterior joinery and garden furniture, it is often used as a more economical alternative to teak, since the two woods share a similar grain structure, density, and colour. When ordering Iroko planed timber from Timbersource, you may select between thicknesses of 25mm, 32mm, 38mm, 50mm, 63mm, 75mm, and 100mm, widths of 130mm - 350mm, and lengths between 2m - 4.8m.
This wood is fairly easy to work, with good gluing and nailing properties, and minimal degradation during drying.
The heartwood is both durable and resistant to decay; although the sapwood is vulnerable to the powder-post beetle, it is highly resistant to termites. However, before ordering Iroko planed timber from Timbersource, it is worth noting that occasional calcium carbonate deposits may damage tools, and interlocking grain spirals may cause a rough effect. Overall, this is a wood of medium density, weight, and crushing strength, with low stiffness and shock resistance.
