April 2019 | Wood of the Month
April 2019 WOM | African Chechen (often called African Ziricote) closely resembles American Red Gum in aesthetics. African Chechen’s main use is for architectural panels, but it can also be applied in high-end furniture, boat and yacht building, as well as specialty items. This species works easily with both hand and machine tools – and we recommend using very sharp cutting tools when working. Questions or comments? Our knowledgeable sales team at email@example.com looks forward to hearing from you!
Fun fact: According to Woodworking Network, African Chechen is one of the more economical trees from Africa. It grows thick, fast and abundantly. The trees are so large that a single tree can yield 200,000 square feet of veneer.
