The African teaks are important groups which are botanically split into two groups as shown. The sapwood of African teak is light brown tinged with dark brown while the heartwood is pale to reddish brown. The Iroko & Dabema are virtually the same as they have the same coarse texture and straight grained with a wavy to irregular pattern. The Dabema type of African teak possesses an unpleasant odour whilst machining but the end result is similar to the finish of the Iroko type after lacquering. African teak is well known for its very good strength and shock resistance and it also has excellent steam bending properties.
