Timbers

Timbers which I use:

  • Cherry
  • Oak
  • Beech
  • Valnut
  • Acacia
  • Ash
  • Thuja
  • Padouk
  • Amaranth

Padouk and Amaranth are exotic woods in my country. Therefore they are very very expensive.

The other timbers are less expensive. Their prices are about 500 - 1000 eur / m3.

Not beside the point that while processing (sawing, planing, milling, sanding) about 30% of waste!

Please check the photos. Unfortunately the photo is slightly distorts thir real beauty
