Cut to Size / Planed Keruing Timber

The sapwood is greyish-brown and distinct, and usually 50mm to 75mm wide. The heartwood varies from light red to reddish-brown or brown, darkening on exposure. The grain is usually straight but may be shallowly interlocked, and the texture is moderately coarse or coarse.

Many Tropical timbers including Keruing may be affected by the tiny Ambrosia beetle when the logs are fresh-felled and lying on the Forest floor in humid climates. As soon as the log is resawn and kiln-dried, the Ambrosia dies i.e. it is not continuous damaging woodworm. This is not considered a defect.

Ordering Keruing Timber

The benefits of Keruing timber derive mainly from its strength. It is moderately resistant to shock and moderately durable. While it is non-resistant to some termite breeds, it requires little maintenance, is very hard-wearing, and is ideal for both outdoor furniture and construction.
