Merbau (intsia bijuga)

Merbau is a hard and heavy asian timber utilised throughout asia for heavy construction work, docks, jetties etc. Because of it strength qualities and a resistance to sea water.

In the pacific islands traditionally used for the post beams of long houses, and for the main hull, masthead and steering oars of the large ocean going canoes. Merbau contains tannin a dye used in industry.

A rich warm russet brown timber with gold undertones and the merbau signature shimmering golden fleck throughout the grain. A timber without heavy figuring for that client which prefers a more subtle dark wood.

Merbau is a distinctively masculine timber, for any room or style of interior. It is very versatile due to the subtlety of figuring and neutral brown colour. For georgian period interiors where a more sophisticated wood than oak is preferred. Merbau’s colour and patina is a perfect partner for faded georgian furniture.
