Meranti Fir Plywood And Lumber

Typically a dark reddish or purplish brown; commonly with white resin streaks present. Typically easy to work, though any interlocked grain can present problems during planning, and Dark Red Meranti is reported to have very poor steam-bending properties. Some species may have a slight blunting effect on tools due to small levels of silica present in the wood. Glues, stains, and finishes well.

Meranti is sometimes used as a look-a-like for Mahoganies when properly stained and finished. Can be used for some cabinet work and mouldings. Good for general construction uses and sometimes used in boatbuilding.
