Native to the African rainforests, Teak Dabema is moderately durable and strong. Naturally resistant to decay, the wood is ideal for construction and flooring. While the Dabema sapwood is light pink or red in colour, the heartwood is dark brown and is easy to determine. The grain is typically interlocked and gives ribbon-like figures when quartersawn.
Teak Dabema works well, blunting of tooth edges is most pronounced in sawing. A cutting angle of 15 degrees is suggested for planing knives to minimize tearing of interlocked grain. Nailing and glueing is satisfactory, with moderate wood-bending characteristics.
