The name comes from the African hardwood Azobe, also known as Ekki or Red Ironwood.  Tom is an avid woodworker when he has the time and uses many different woods to make fine furniture.  Azobe is often used to make railway sleepers due to its exceptional hardness and durability.   Used in finer applications it has a beautiful deep red colour and interesting texture resulting in unique pieces.
