Botanically, cuangare (Dialyanthera) is closely related to banak, and the woods are so similar that they are Banak is considered a general utility wood for lumber, veneer, and plywood. It is also used for moulding, millwork, and furniture components. ) belong to the same West African genus, they differ rather markedly in color and somewhat in texture. The heartwood of benge is pale yellowish brown to medium brown with gray to almost black stripes. Ehie heartwood tends to be more golden brown to dark brown with gray to almost black stripes.

Mahogany, African—The bulk of “African mahogany” shipped from west–central Africa is Khaya ivorensis, the most widely distributed and plentiful species of the genus found in the coastal belt of the so-called high forest. The closely allied species K. anthotheca has a more restricted range and is found farther inland in regions of lower rainfall but well within the area now being used for the export trade. The heartwood varies from pale pink to dark reddish brown. The grain is frequently interlocked, and the texture is medium to coarse, comparable with that of American mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla).

Officinale but is more extensive and includes the Pacific side of Central America as well as southern Mexico. 1–24 Lignumvitae is one of the heaviest and hardest woods on the market. The wood is characterized by its unique green color and oily or waxy feel. The wood has a fine uniform texture and closely interlocked grain. Its resin content may constitute up to one-fourth of the air-dried weight of the heartwood. Lignumvitae wood is used chiefly for bearing or bushing blocks for ship propeller shafts.
