More info

This Azobe is almost new in appearance with very few marks or cracks - it is completely untreated due to its hard wearing, dense characteristics. Perfect for use in and around children's play areas, water features or any location where constant contact is required. A stunning piece of African Hardwood timber.

Please note that reclaimed railway sleepers have been used previously for many decades. Therefore your reclaimed sleepers may contain fragments of metal and the possibility of spray paint or markings on the surface of the sleeper.

Landscaping with Azobe

We will be buying another batch of these for another project.
They are VERY heavy, tough and extremely dense: which makes them perfect for landcaping projects that are likely to take significant loads.
It has been said here and elsewhere that you’ll need a chainsaw to cut these: do not believe them! We destroyed a new chainsaw chain and barely made a dent.
Cut these with a diamond disc cutter: the sort you use for curb stones - this works well.
Do not attempt to drill with a wood drill - Azobe just laughs it off! A very heavy duty drill is required - ideally 3 phase and high quality masonry drills - use the hammer function.
Overally cut and drill these sleepswrs as though tjey are stone and you won’t be disappointed.

    I used these on a landscape garden project and they are perfect for stepped beds etc, loads of character but not too damaged. Beware though, they are VERY heavy and tough, you need a chainsaw or large mitre saw to cut them .
