Planed Utile Timber:

Utile has a light brown sapwood which is visually very different from the heartwood, which is a pinkish brown finish.

It is widely considered that Utile is probably the genuine alternative to Mahogany. Utile most closely resembles the Mahogany, which it is so often used to replace.

In terms of woodworking. Utile needs an experienced craftsman as it is quite a hard timber to work. The natural Cedar like aroma and beautiful colouration means any trouble working the timber will be worth it when you see the result.

Similar to Sapele, Utile is of reddish-brown in colour. The grain is interlocked, producing a ribbon-stripe appearance.

As a timber, Utile is more durable and often used for external joinery such as windows and doors.
