Our Mindi timber range comes in assorted sizes and available in White Wash, Mahogany, Antique Black or Chocolate.
Mindi, which is naturally resistant to decay and fungi, is another name for white cedar wood. Dutch travelers and merchants brought it to Indonesia. The natives started growing the wood in plantations and named it “mindi.” The straight-grained timber is native to and produced in the Solomon Islands, Australia, and tropical Asia with China, India, Japan, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Papua New Guinea.
Extremely workable,—thus favored by artisans, cabinetmakers, and woodworkers— the naturally coarse wood sands smoothly, tolerates friction, saws easily, and dries effortlessly with less shrinking and warping than comparable materials. It is ideal in solid form, but also a favorite for veneers.
In Indonesia, craftspeople and workers employ mindi to make boxes, chests, flooring, furniture, as well as other furnishings and accessories.
