  9. Why We Don't Sell Suar Wood

    Why We Don't Sell Suar Wood

    This is a long article. However, if you intend to purchase a piece of wood slab furniture, I highly encourage you to look through it diligently. It could prevent much heartache in the future.

    TL;DR

    Many of our customers come to us enquiring about Suar wood. We avoid Indonesian Suar wood at all costs as it is a problematic product; it warps, splits and grows mold easily. Indonesia lacks the technology and processes to properly dry their wood, and factories there tend to take shortcuts when it comes to drying their wood properly. The easiest way to see if wood is dried properly is to make sure it is below 7cm in thickness; it is simply not possible to properly Kiln-dry pieces thicker than that.
