Taste Furniture only uses Kwila (Merbau) timber in our range of high quality outdoor furniture due to its very high level of stability, low shrinkage properties and overall exceptional outdoor performance characteristics.
The Australian Department of Primary Industries has given Kwila a Rating One, which is the highest standard of suitability for timber outdoor furniture. A straight-grained wood with a hardness factor of 8.6 making it one of the strongest and most durable outdoor timbers in the world. Very high oil content makes it weather and pest resistant and perfect for garden furniture.
We have more than 20 years experience selling Kwila and have not experienced any problems. That's why it is our opinion as a superior timber ideally suited for outdoor furniture.
Remember the Australian Climate is very harsh we recommend you use our outdoor timber oil on all your outdoor timber, available at all Taste Furniture Stores.
