I agree totally on that. Just be aware that Irok, like Teak wood, color varies from almost greenish to dark brown, so you have to be choosy. And Iroko sawing creates an irritant dust.

Re: Wood that matches teak

Try “Sapele”, I used it for some cabinet doors, looks good against the teak panels

Re: Wood that matches teak

What about one of the "teak" substitutes?

The range now is massive with all sorts of colours and effects available to match in with every shade of teak and style of caulking. Cooler to stand on, doesn't weather or crack and in many cases is made from recycled materials so providing a demand for waste products instead of cutting down virgin forests.

Or cork?

Just a couple of other ideas for something that looks like teak but isn't

and if you have to sand it wear a dust mask and goggles, I got a severe allergic reaction to it, face and cheeks so badly swollen, I could hardly see.
