Wooden Backing Boards - Iroko & Sapele

£7.00 (ex. VAT)
Beautiful wooden backing boards made from either oil rich Iroko or Sapele (deep red, similar to Mahogany). Used to mount engraved plaques, which can be bought separately. *


We can supply wooden backing boards if required. Sapele (similar to mahogany) and Iroko (similar to teak) are good value and very popular

Sapele is very rich, lustrous, and variable reddish-brown colour give it a mahogany-like appearance. However unlike most mahoganies, Sapele has substantially less movement in service. It is also even harder than oak. It is moderately durable and should always be well maintained.

Iroko is similar to teak in appearance. It has a colour which can vary from pale golden brown to dark chocolate brown. It is a medium density timber which is very stable, naturally oily and therefore highly durable and ideal for external signs. It is a timber which can be left untreated. 

As well as Iroko and Sapele  we can make backing boards in Oak which are slightly more expensive. These can be painted black or any other colour.

When finding the price of a backing board you will need to add about 1 " 25mm to the size of the plaque. eg  plate 4" x 6" will need a backing board 5" x 7".

We aim to make your plaque just the way you want it - specify any extra details in the box entitled 'notes'

You can pay online with a card, by phone, by cheque, by BACS or by Amazon.
