Anigre Wood

Anigre Wood Lumber is a hardwood species commonly used for plywood, furniture, cabinetry and high-end millwork. Although it is frequently sliced and used as a veneer, it is available in board form as lumber.  Anigre wood lumber is typically used for boat building, general carpentry, and other light construction uses.

Anigre Wood Lumber is primarily sourced from East and West Africa. Anigre wood is reported to saw and machine easily, though the wood can have silica that would have a dulling effect on tools.
