Avodire, Figured

Also known as: African Satinwood

Botanical Name: Turraeanthus Africana

Origin: Tropical West Africa

Description: Although the odd plain log is occasionally sliced, the main demand is for figured veneer. The logs are mostly quarter cut in order to accentuate the pretty mottle figure. Avodire has a lustrous surface with a fine texture. Once seen quite frequently in railway carriages, it is nowadays mainly used for furniture and decorative interiors.
