Utile Planed All Round Board 44mm Thick

Similar to Sapele, Utile is of reddish-brown in colour. The grain is interlocked, producing a ribbon-stripe appearance.
The heartwood and sapwood are distinct; the heartwood is pale pink when freshly cut, darkening on exposure to reddish-brown. It closely resembles the related sapele, both in appearance and properties, but is more open in texture due to the larger pores, and generally produces a broad ribbon-stripe, often wider and more irregular than that of sapele. It weighs about 660 kg/m3 when dried.
Its strength properties are similar to those of America mahogany.
Works rather well, but with a slight blunting effect on cutting edges. A cutting angle of 15 degrees will reduce the tendency for the interlocked grain to tear during planning and moulding. Takes stain and glue well, and polishes well after filling.
Utile is used for the same purpose as sapele, ie, furniture, cabinets, joinery, shop-fitting, boat-building, as veneer for plywood, and for decoration.
