Hi Everyone

Away on holiday at the moment and saw this wooden panelling in a park and was wondering what wood it was. I guessed iroko perhaps but honestly have no idea. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Without knowing what the coating is,if any,its hard to be certain.Some of it looks like sapele.

I'd think its price would preclude its being teak. Afrormosia? Could be sapele. As above, the finish could be coloured.

I went back and taken a couple more pics. Ones in bright sunlight so colour looks a little different. It's very similar to someone's new gate at home in the UK near us. Will try to snap one of that too. I hope to build a workshop/garden house next summer and this looks like a really nice wood to clad it in...
