Meranti Plywood

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. All of our Meranti Plywood is housed at Weber Plywood & Lumber Co. in Orange County, CA.
