Merbau

Botanical Name: Intsia bijuga (palembanica)
Merbau, Ipil, Kwila

Kwila is a large hardwood native to South-East Asia from the Malaysian mainland through the islands to New Guinea and as far east as Fiji and the Solomon Islands with some occurrence in northern Australia.
Under its various names the timber is widely available in Australia and is highly regarded for a broad range of applications.

Although very dense the timber work fairly well, dresses and turns to a smooth surface however the rather greasy characteristic of the wood tends to clog saws and planer blades easily. The heartwood is orange-brown to brown or dark red-brown while the sapwood is usually pale yellow and very easy to distinguish.
