Postby Sunpax » Thu Jul 07, 2011 7:01 am

Yesterday I was in home pro..and buy a nice door ! i am happy..but the staff tell me that is a New Zealander wood...

What kind of wood can it be ? its a very hell wood...If I remember some years before I use to buy wood to work...and it was some teak from New Zealand ..what the shop tell me ! but it was not so hell more like grey hell brown...

Nobody appears to have the answer to your New Zealand question Sunpax.

Teak wood is Mai Sak - see: http://coolthaihouse.com/forum/viewtopi ... eng#p18633

Sunpax,
The reason nobody is hazarding a guess is because of the number of varieties of New Zealand wood available for import. If you go to this site you'll find out why nobody is guessing. http://www.nzwood.co.nz/what-wood/timber-species/
