Our Obeche is harvested in Tropical West Africa and is commonly used for furniture, veneer, plywood, and interior millwork. Obeche is rated as non-durable and has poor insect/borer resistance. Obeche’s heartwood is a pale yellow, with the sapwood not clearly differentiated from the heartwood.  The color darkens with age. Grain is interlocked, with a medium to coarse texture and good natural luster.
