The Beauty of Meranti Planed Timber
Native to Malaysia, Meranti timber is a beautifully coloured hardwood which can vary between pale pink and white to dark red and purple. Density varies greatly between its numerous sub-species. We find that many people ordering Meranti timber from Timbersource value this wood for its similarity to mahogany, and often use it for windows, conservatories, and doors. When ordering Meranti timber cut to size from Timbersource, you will be able to select from thicknesses of 1", 1¼", 1½", 2", 2½", 3" and 4", widths of around 4" – 12”, and lengths of around 7’ - 18’.
Meranti timber is usually easy to work by either hand or machine, and possesses good nailing and gluing properties.
It takes finish well, though some tearing might occur due to the interlocking grain. However, care must be taken when drying, as this wood may sometimes split. The heartwood is relatively durable, though the sapwood is often vulnerable to the powder-post beetle. Overall, Meranti is a wood of reasonable strength and hardness, which is extremely stable.
