Angongui is a homogenous wood with a grey-pink tint. This wood is also known as Onzabili and has a coarse and felt-like structure.


Botanical name: Antrocaryon klaineanum
Overall character: This simple and soft wood has moderate shrinking and good strength properties. However, it is not resistant to weather or insects.
Color and structure: There’s a minimal color difference between the heartwood and the sapwood: both are a greyish pink to light red, not clearly contrasted fom each other.
Characteristics/features: Angongui wood can be worked with all tools. It has proven itself to be a very elastic peeled veneer, and plywood panels made out of this material have great endurance.
Areas of use: As Angongui is a plain wood that’s not particularly decorative, it is mostly used indoors in areas that require medium strength construction woods. It is a peeled veneer similar to Okoume.
