  • Imported Budget Range – New Guinea Rosewood

    Rosewood is a hardwood native to South-East Asia, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Sabah, Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia. The heartwood of rosewood can be either golden brown or a dark blood-red, while the sapwood is pale yellow and up to 60mm wide. The wood is of medium texture and the grain is variable. Freshly cut, the wood has a fragrant odour and is often highly figured: burrs are highly prized in furniture-making.

    The timber is susceptible to lyctid borer, but is termite resistant. In its sawn form it is easily worked with hand and machine tools. The heartwood is hard to stain, but polishes to a lustrous finish. Rosewood is imported in small quantities.

  • Imported Budget Range – Kwila (Merbau)

    Merbau is a popular hardwood derived largely from areas in South East Asia, Papua New Guinea, the Pacific islands, and northern Queensland. With its high degree of natural durability and strength it is used externally in engineering, construction and marine applications. Merbau also features in backyards as outdoor furniture, and internally in a range of joinery, flooring and other uses.

    Merbau is harvested from tropical forests and, in some cases, may be sourced from forests legally converted to other land uses or where there are inadequate controls. Certified merbau is available in Australia, so it is suggested you check with your supplier. Certification and chain of custody systems, including DNA tracking, will provide assurance that the wood is from legal and/or well managed forests.

  • Imported Budget Range – American Red Oak

    American red oak is the trade name for eight commercially available species within the large group of oaks. The trees grow extensively across the eastern part of the USA and are more abundant than the American white oak. This means that there is a good supply of Red Oak as both sawn timber and veneer, and in a range of grades and specifications. In the US red oak is often classified according to its growing region, and sold as northern red oak (Quercus rubra) or southern red oak (Quercus falcata)*.

    A highly attractive timber, the sapwood of the red oak ranges from white to light brown, with a pink to red-brown heartwood. While similar in appearance to white oak, red oak has slightly smaller rays and so has a less pronounced figure. The end grain structure of the red oak is also more porous. It is a typically straight-grained wood with a coarse texture, although both colour and texture can vary dependent on the growing region. The name, red oak, comes from colour of the leaves in autumn.
