April 2019 | Wood of the Month
April 2019 WOM | African Chechen wood veneer (often called African Ziricote) closely resembles American Red Gum in aesthetic. 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 M. Bohlke Corp. 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 wood veneer.
