Selecting the Perfect Timber Type
For Your Project
NEW GUINEA ROSEWOOD
New Guinea Rosewood (‘NGR’) is a stable hardwood that doesn’t chip, split and bleed as much as most other comparable hardwoods. NGR has a high rating against cracks and shrinkage, and is easier to sand, paint and polish than other softer woods. The price of NGR is economical compared to other comparable species of hardwoods. NGR can be more susceptible to slight leeching if not properly sealed with oil based paints. ALLKIND is proudly an Australian owned company based in QLD, and we source our New Guinea Rosewood from Australian timber merchants.
Natural Golden Yellow and Brown colour with a variable grain, giving NGR a desirable natural appearance with character.
Excellent: Hardness, Finish, Stability, Durability and Machining.
Good: Resistance to Splitting.
Surian Cedar (‘SC’) is a durable timber with a high rating against cracks and shrinking. SC is a lighter wood, and is more affordable than some other timber species. SC is softer than its comparable hardwood counterparts, and can be susceptible to slightly more movement. Paint finishing of SC requires more attention than, for example, New Guinea Rosewood.

It is also know to be more susceptible to splits and cracks, with a lower rating against movement than comparable timbers such as New Guinea Rosewood.

WESTERN RED CEDAR
Western Red Cedar (‘WRC’) is a relatively durable but very soft wood, commonly used only for cabinetry detailing and cladding. WRC is more susceptible to movement than most other comparable timbers. ALLKIND often recommends alternative solutions before using WRC for timber joinery in Queensland homes, as it is not a strong performing timber in the humid, sub-tropical climate.
