Idigbo gates are definitely our favourite here at Wooden Gate Timber Products .
It offers a strong and very attractive finish. Similar in appearance to OAK but has much less knots, splits and twists.
Fairly lightweight around 560kgs per cubic metre.
Idigbo takes a stain well. It can be painted however as Idigbo is a fairly oily hardwood we would recommend using an aluminium based prime/undercoat to lock the tannins in the timber.
Idigbo makes great driveway gates and garden gates for nearly any application.
