Various Angico log samples with varying aesthetics

September 2020 Wood of the Month | Our Angico wood veneer inventory consists of various panel lengths, complete with a wide range of aesthetics. Typically flat cut, Angico wood veneer generally has rich reddish brown heartwood with slightly darker cathedrals. Angico veneer can also have pinks, tans and lighter brown tones as well, making it a very colorful species. It also has a fine texture and medium luster.

The tree and regional uses

Angico is a large tree with a wide growth range and is found all over the world, especially in South America and India. Angico typically reaches heights up to 100 feet with trunk diameters around four feet. Because the bole is usually clear of branches up to 50 feet, Angico is an ideal timber for architectural veneer use.

Within its native regions, Angico wood has various uses, most notably structural uses, heavy duty flooring and mine timbers. Angico wood is also used for boat building, furniture and turnery.

Common veneer uses and further details

Angico veneer has a multitude of uses, including architectural panels, cabinetry, doors and furniture. Also utilized for luxury yacht and aircraft interiors. We consider Angico veneer as a good substitute for Santos Rosewood as well.

Angico wood veneer is very naturally oily, therefore it always turns dark or even black in a hot press. In order to maintain its beautiful contrasting colors, we recommend it to be cold pressed instead.

Veneer log inspections, virtual and in-person

Our Live Veneer Log Inspection service allows you to view a veneer log inspection via a live stream! We also offer the flexibility of sending recorded video directly to you for viewing at your leisure.

Watching a veneer log inspection at your convenience provides the same control as if you were here. You can pause the inspection for longer views of grain structure and color consistency and, if streaming live, request to see logs a second time the moment you need to.

In addition, we are happy to share that our facilities are open for scheduled visits. Please contact your M. Bohlke sales representative or use our contact form to schedule an in-person visit.
