Features of Merbau Timber
Merbau is not only one of the most hardwearing and beautiful timbers available to play with today, but it is also naturally resistant to weathering and insect damage, due to the fact that it is organically abundant in essential oils. Note that leaving Merbau untreated will result in a stunning naturally weathered aesthetic. If, however, you wish to further treat your merbau for extended longevity and a different look, it can easily be done.
