Sipo (entandrophragma utile)

Sipo is a handsome african hardwood member of the mahogany family which grows in the high forests of the ivory coast and cameroons, with the same beautiful colour and figure as the fine honduras and cuban mahoganies.

Sipo is a pale peachy russet when freshly sawn, and then becomes first warm russet red and finally a deep rich warm russet brown with occasional deep gold undertones. The surface is satin smooth and has an attractive subtle surface shimmer.

An ideal timber if minimal tonal variation, virtually no knotting and subtle figure are preferred.

Traditionally used for high class joinery, flooring and fine reproduction furniture. Sipo is a wonderful timber for light domestic areas. So beautiful in feminine bedrooms, or elegant drawing rooms with fluid silks where a timber with reddish tones is preferred.
