DETAILS
Okoume is also called Gabon (not to be confused with Gabon Ebony). This is a large African tree that grows 90-120 ft. tall and between 30” to 70” in diameter. The heartwood is salmon-pink to golden brown with narrow sapwood that is whitish or pale grey.  The tree generally has interlocked grain that produces a good natural luster. Okoume wood is lightweight and strong, working easily and gluing well with a density between .36 to .42. It has a medium blunting effect on cutters. It is commonly used in the manufacturing of aircraft in Europe and boats Worldwide.

This special batch is mostly quarter or rift sawn. Figured boards have a silky wavy patterns that are very nice.   These are clean boards that have been surfaced on two sides and are all kiln dried. The pictures show the boards in natural lighting with a simulated natural finish that a polyurethane or shellac finish will provide.
