A native to Western Australia, Marri has a distinctive honey coloured grain which is broken up with dark contrasting sap lines. In the past, it was these sap lines which precluded Marri from being an "A grade" timber and many saw mills produced very few Marri slabs and planks. These days, it's these features that make Marri a highly sought after timber for fine furniture.
A regularly used timber at Flowing Wood, Marri is beautiful when finished but does have its limitations. It's important to know that due to the large sap lines, Marri is not considered a structural grade wood and if not properly treated and joined there are risks of warping and cracking. There are additional steps we take when building anything from Marri to ensure its longevity, including the use of epoxy resin and modern joinery techniques.
