Cut to Size Utile Timber








Planed Utile Timber

The Beauty of Utile Planed Timber

Imported from West Africa, Utile timber is considered a ‘sister’ species to sapele, although its grain structure provides a better finish, making Utile slightly more expensive. We stock widths and lengths which are slightly smaller than those provided for sapele.

The benefits of utile cut to size timber are similar to those enjoyed by sapele. This wood both glues and nails well, and the finish is usually excellent, though it often requires some filing. Normally used for furniture, joinery, and cabinet making, this is a wood of medium hardness and weight, with medium bending and crushing strengths, though it should be noted that utile is not suitable for steam bending or wood bending. The interlocking grain may tear during shaping work, and its irregular nature may make machining troublesome, so the benefits of utile cut to size timber should be weighed against these drawbacks.
