European and African Hardwoods

European and African Hardwoods – these days limited to European White Oak and European Beech as well as Iroko. We are stocked up and have all FSC stock to boot.

European Beech – good steady sales. Stocks slow coming into the country as the demand in Europe hammers the supply. We have a new shipment due in next week and once it’s here will have a good level of 25, 40 and 50mm all lightly steamed and straight line ripped and blanked. Beautiful.

European Beech Furniture

The grain of European Beech is even and it has a nice fleck..

European White Oak – slow sales I guess reflecting the higher costs. We stock 25, 40 and 50mm in a rustic grade and sell a wide ( 205mm cover) T&G.

European White Oak is a beautiful timber..

Iroko – this beautiful Class 1 durable timber from West Africa is seeing good use in Joinery and some outdoor furniture. We stock 25, 40 and 50mm in random width stocks.

Iroko or East African teak as some call it is a great timber, be careful though it is a lively species.

/imagesdb/Issue/283ae19f-4125-4c2a-b276-7a18c196d7c1.jpgThe year in review
A great year with strong growth again, although as is the norm in our industry there are lots of peaks and troughs along the way. Very strong regional patterns emerging with 3 areas standing out. Central Otago, Canterbury and Auckland are the drivers, the rest are small by comparison.
/imagesdb/Issue/2482450c-c251-453a-98f0-89b2c8703747.jpgSupply Chain update
Not a lot of surprises, naturally durable timber supplies are limited and by and large the recovery from GFC and re build in NZ have stretched supply chain capacities to supply.

No great surprises currently. Costs here and there rising although often times mitigated by exchange rate fluctuations.
/imagesdb/Issue/3c43d31e-8ab4-4367-99c5-7457450efb1d.jpgMarket Update
