Appearance:

Afromosia is known for its beautiful coloration. The heartwood of Afromosia darkens on exposure from deep orange-brown or brown to brownish-yellow with darker streaks. The sapwood is narrow, creamy-brown, lighter in color and clearly demarcated. The grain varies from straight to slightly interlocked, and has a ropelike figure when cut radially; the texture is medium to fine. An attractive mottled figure is revealed on quartersawn surfaces.

Properties:

Afromosia is a heavy and dense wood that is extremely durable and very resistant to termites. This wood has a wide range of uses both for interior and exterior applications. It contains tannin, a substance that has a tendency to cause blue stains. If used near metals in wet conditions, such as in boatbuilding, it will cause corrosion or dark staining. Sawdust from Afromosia can be an eye irritant. Work this wood in conditions that provide good ventilation. Afromosia dries slowly with little degrade and small movement in service. Afromosia has high bending and crushing strength, but can distort during steaming. Interlocking grain can affect machining, and it has a moderate blunting effect on cutting tools. Afromosia works well with normal tools, but a low cutting angle is advised for planning. Pre-boring for screws and nails is recommended. Afromosia takes an excellent finish and glues well. Afromosia closely resembles teak and is so often used as a teak substitute that it is sometimes referred to as African teak. It is prized for more than simply its resemblance to teak - it is also valued for character and properties all its own.
