Makore Timber Veneer – Makore (Tieghemella heckelii) is native to the rainforests of West Africa. It can be found in Nigeria, Sierra Leone, the Ivory Coast, Ghana and Liberia. The tree can grow to a height of 60m with a trunk diameter of up to 3m.
Makore timber veneer has a magnificent appearance. It is best known for its figure types – block mottle figure, crotch, broken stripe, curly and a very tight fiddleback. It is a naturally lustrous wood which helps exaggerate the various figure types.
The heartwood colour is a pinkish to reddish-brown with occasional purple streaks. The sapwood is clearly demarcated from the heart. It is a creamy white colour and can be up to 3 inches wide. Makore has a fine texture and the grain is usually very straight.
