Aircut,
I was told that is where the wood for my bloody doors came from and I can assure you I have had nothing but trouble since.

You've got me worried now Roger. We've just bought some solid hardwood doors and frames that my wife says are made from 'Maisuk' wood. They need a bit of work on them to bring them up to standard but were hoping they will be worth it. We've put 6 doors undercover at our present address and both of us were completely knackered lifting and moving them.

Just Googled 'Maisuk' and it looks like there made from Teak. No wonder they were heavy. At 3800baht each I reckon I got a good deal.

The shop is on the ring road. On the bend between the Global traffic lights and the Nong Khai traffic lights.

I should point out I bought old stock and quite a bit of it, hence the discount. Needs quite a bit of elbow grease to get them looking good. I think the new stock will cost a little bit more but still a good price for teak. Also, I've been back there 4 times over the past two days trying to get a good quality, straight, 180cm cross beam for the front door. Check the quality of whats available and what can be ordered.
