Aningre - wood, parquet, profileAningre wood is a relatively unknown wood in Germany. It is usually used as plywood in interior design and is also used to make different furniture.
Due to its special properties, it is mainly used in brush manufacture, the plywood industry and in box production.
In many cases, Aningre also serves as a substitute for the popular walnut wood. Often the Aningre wood species is not clearly defined because there are many woods that have a similar structure.
The inaccurate definition is given above all when the wood comes from Liberia, from the Ivory Coast or from Ghana. In Africa, there are also several botanical species that are very similar to the Aningre and are also traded as such. These related genera are, for example, Aningeria, Breviea, Donella and Gamberya.
Since the origin is not always clear and the delimitation of species groups is also hampered by the similarity of the woods, the information in terms of geographical origin or botanical affiliation often overlap.
