Working qualities

Iroko works fairly well with most tools, though with some dulling effect on their cutting edges and a reduction of cutting angle to 15° is usually necessary to obtain a smooth surface. An excellent finish can be obtained if the grain is filled. It takes nails and screws well, and glues satisfactorily.
