Buy African Utile Timber
Are you looking for attractive and durable timber for your next DIY project?
Then Utile may be the timber for you. This hardwood features a reddish-brown pigmentation, although sapwood tends to be a paler yellow. Utile lacks dramatic figuring of grain, which gives this timber a uniform appearance and texture.
Utile is sourced from West and Central Africa. The timber is often compared to mahogany, due to its dark pigmentation and durability.
Utile needs an experienced craftsman to work with it. However, the natural cedar-like aroma and beautiful colouration means any trouble working the timber will be worth it when you see the end result.
Utile is also a very durable timber, and can be used in a variety of outdoor and indoor projects. It is even a popular choice for boat building.
