How Well Do You Know Kwila?

Know Your Timber

Also known as Merbau, Kwila is a popular hardwood derived largely from areas of South East Asia, Papua New Guinea, the Pacific Islands and Northern Queensland.

With its high degree of natural durability and strength, it is used externally in engineering, construction and marine applications. Kwila also makes appearances in backyards as outdoor furniture and internally in a range of joinery, flooring and other uses.

Common Applications

In construction Kwila can be used for framing, decking, step treads, fence and pergola posts, privacy screening and other general needs.


Kwila usually has a wavy, interlocked grain, making it a great piece of timber to use as a feature piece. When applied with a good stain, paint or polish it will make the timber look visually attractive and gives your project a great look!
