The Ironwood tree grows mainly in the Tsitsikamma forests around Knysna. With a Janka hardness of over 13000N, it can be a difficult timber to work, but it is very durable and extremely strong. It can be prone to cracking and splitting and pre-drilling is recommended when nailing or screwing. The variegated colour resembles Wild Olive (it comes from the same genus) somewhat and provides for stunning finished pieces. Buy Wholesale Ironwood Lumber from African Forest Timber Ltd.
