CLOSEOUT - WHILE SUPPLIES LAST
OKUME / OKOUME A1
15mm (5/8") - 4'X8'
IMPORT
VENEER CORE


Okoume plywood made from African hardwood, uniformly reddish in color generally used as a utility plywood and for decoration.

Okoume is undoubtedly the most important of the African timbers with respect to production volume and utilizalion. Supplies originate principally in French Equatorial Africa.

The sapwood of Okoume plywood is narrow and has a pale gray color. The heartwood is a salmon pink or light pinkish brown to a dark reddish brown. The texture is similar to that of Mahogany. The grain is straight to interlocked, wavy, and variable.

Okoume plywood is used in the United States only in the form of veneer, which obviates the difficulties that may be encountered in seasoning and machining in the solid form.  Okoume is pink in color on the face and back. Face veneers are usually Rotary Cut, Whole Piece Face. The core is a Chinese Poplar that typically has more layers than other imports. For instance, an 18mm panel will have 13 plys versus a 7 or 9 ply product from other countries. Having a Poplar core makes this product less stable than a tropical hardwood core. 

Okoume is most commonly used in the construction of the cabinet boxes. Okoume is a good substitute for Meranti, Virola, or Faveria plywood. Cost of Okoume makes this product more attractive than other import plywood.
