Teak Iroko is golden-orange to brown; lighter vessel lines are conspicuous on flat saw surfaces. The material may contain large, hard deposits of calcium carbonate in cavities, and the timber around them may be darker in colour. The grain is interlocked and sometimes irregular, and the texture rather coarse, but even, figure mottled. The wood is somewhat greasy and is odourless. Iroko is a highly valued commercial timber in Africa, for which demand is large.
Teak Iroko is a dense African timber that has good weathering properties. It is a decent substitute for teak and even shares a similar colour range. Iroko wood possesses a medium to coarse texture with an interlocking grain that often produces interesting patterns. It is very durable in the outdoors; open pores require filling for a smooth finish. These woods are re-used in the boating industry, and does blunt tools because of their hardness.
