Kauri wood makes stunning conference room or dining room tables, walls, doors or other interior design elements.
The ancient Kauri tree, native to New Zealand, is the oldest workable timber on Earth. Radio carbon dating to 50,000 years old, these trees grew for 1,000-2,000 years and then they were preserved underground for 50,000 years. The thousands of years of growth means that Kauri trees yield some of the largest slabs ever seen — the largest single plank being nearly 40 feet long, 5 feet wide and 4-1/2 inches thick (870 board feet).
Harvesting Kauri wood doesn't involve cutting any standing trees, and all of the land is redressed to its original contours, so Kauri is totally eco-friendly. It qualifies for LEED credits — perfect for green building and design.
The colors and finishes are stunning! The highly polished finish is rich and luminous with warm gold and cognac color and distinctive grains. It glistens as if lit from within.
Manomin is one a few companies in the U.S. to offer the wood to trade professionals and consumers. Our Kauri wood is certified and guaranteed.
