Our Merbau is sourced from Africa and is commonly used in Millwork products such as furniture, musical instruments, turned objects, and other specialty wood items. It is very durable and has good insect and borer resistance. Merbau heartwood varies from orange-ish brown when freshly cut, aging to a darker reddish-brown.
