Moderately durable

Working qualities

It works fairly well with hand and machine tools, but the grain is often troublesome in planing and moulding, and a reduction of cutting angle is needed to obtain a good finish. It takes screws and nails well, glues satisfactorily, stains readily, and takes an excellent polish.

Botanical name

Entandrophragma cylindricum


West and Central Africa
