Our Cut-To-Size Planed All Round Iroko Timber is a very durable, richly coloured and versatile teak wood alternative for all your furniture, cabinet making, interior and exterior joinery woodworking projects and more.

Originating from Tropical Africa, Iroko hardwood is light yellow in colour when freshly cut, turning to beautiful golden brown when exposed to light. This timber can be used as an alternative to teak and comes with an interlocking grain with a fairly coarse texture.

Iroko wood has a strength that rivals that of teak with a decay and insect-resistant composition. Works well with tools and responds well to nails, screws and glues.

Name: Milicia excelsa

Uses: Doors, flooring, garden furniture, stairs, boat building, cabinet making, veneer, worktop, interior and exterior joinery, cladding.

Country of Origin: Found in Tropical Central Africa & West Africa, in areas spanning Guinea-Bissau in the west to Eastern Mozambique. Iroko trees love rainforests, low-altitude evergreen forests and tropical or wet savanna climates, requiring there to be at least a water source or stream nearby for the hardwood thrive.

Woodshop’s Preferred Finish: Osmo 1101 Extra Thin Wood Wax, Osmo 007 Decking Oil

Durability: Durable (15 - 25 years)

Density: 660 Density (Kg/m³)

Colour(s): The heartwood is yellowy golden to mid-brown with a paler yellow sapwood that makes it easy to differentiate between the two. The colour will darken as the wood matures.

The Timber: A tropical African hardwood with an interlocking grain and a fairly coarse but even texture. Iroko is similar to Teak in colouration and happens to offer similar hardness, durability and stability, making it a brilliant alternative. It also doesn’t feel as greasy as Teak and matures beautifully in colour over the course of its lifespan.

Strength: Characterised by its Teak-like strength, durability and density, Iroko is also highly resistant to insect attack, rot and decay. This makes it suitable for both interior and exterior woodworking projects thanks to its impressive practical and hardwearing qualities.

Working Qualities: Usually easy to work with and responds well to tools, nails, screws and glues. The Iroko cut to size hardwood we provide offers a combination of brilliant strength and good workability, making it a highly practical material for your next project. The interlocking grain can result in tear-outs during surface work and the occasional presence of calcium carbonate deposits can cause cutters to dull, so make sure you always have great quality tools to hand. An excellent finish can be produced if you use a grain filler. Iroko is an incredibly versatile wood, capable of being used for a range of applications. It's recommended that machined pieces are fixed immediately after machining.

Uses: Internal, External
