Afromosia Hardwood Veneer
Afromosia Hardwood Veneer is a softwood, but has hardwood characteristics. This makes it a great choice for cabinetry and other options. In addition, it is used for boat interiors, because the wood repels water. In fact, some refer to Afromosia as African Teak. It grows in Africa’s dry forests. Furthermore, Afromosia is ideal for architects and designers who are in the marine industry. Get to work on creating furniture and paneling for your customers’ favorite yachts!
