Afrormosia is one of the most valuable timbers harvested and imported from Africa. Renowned for its durability, it is often used as a substitute for genuine Teak (Tectona grandis). In fact, it is often called African Teak.
It has a distinct sweet and spicy odor while being freshly worked. Afrormosia is a beautiful wood and deserves consideration for many woodworking projects on its own merits.
