Doussie Veneer

Afzelia Veneer

Doussie is known many names, mainly Afzelia, and grows extensively in West, Central & East Africa, occurring in the dense evergreen forests, but also common in the savanna and coastal forests of East Africa.

The pale straw to whitish Doussie sapwood is easily differentiated from the reddish brown heartwood and has medium lustre. Some pores contain a yellow dyestuff which, under moist conditions, can discolor textiles, paper, or other cellulosic materials.

Doussie grain is often irregular and interlocked and the wood has a coarse texture, which finishes to a high polish, although although it can be difficult to stain where pores contain yellow deposits and grain filling is sometimes desired.
