Anigre is an African hardwood whose heartwood is a light yellowish-brown, sometimes with a pinkish hue. The color tends to darken to a more golden brown with age. Figured grain is occasionally present, such as curly or mottled grain. Commonly used for plywood, interior furniture, cabinetry, and high-end mill work applications. It is frequently sliced and sold as veneer, although it is available in board form as well. In board form it is used for boat building, general carpentry, and other light construction uses.
