sipo

Grown in west and central Africa, Sipo is used for a variety of millwork applications, thanks to its attractive appearance and moderate resistance to rot and termites. It’s also fairly easy to work with and turns, glues, and finishes well. Its heartwood is a uniform medium-reddish brown with an interlocked grain, uniform texture and moderate natural luster. Interestingly, it also has a faint cedarlike odor.
