Kwila or Merbau is a naturally oily hardwood. It is a very dense hardwood and is nearly twice as dense as pine. Due to its strength and durability, Kwila is regarded as one of the most durable outdoor timbers in the world. Popular applications of Kwila include external decking, window and doorframes, stair treads, marine jetties and even salt water jetty stumps.
Kwila is found in many parts of the world, including areas of far north Australia, Papua New Guinea and Malaysia. Timber used in the production of outdoor furniture is sourced from plantations using controlled production techniques. These techniques enable the worlds forest resources to be maintained at a sustainable rate.
The natural oils found in Kwila combined with its dense nature enable Kwila furniture to be left to weather without damaging the furniture. If left to weather, Kwila will dry out to a silver/grey colour (like all hardwoods). If the rich brown colour is preferred, Kwila will require periodic oiling. The time period between oiling differs depending upon the degree of exposure to the elements.
When Kwila furniture is first exposed to the elements after manufacture, there is an initial bleeding process. This bleeding process can be accelerated by thoroughly soaking down Kwila furniture with water. It is difficult to predict how long this bleeding process will take, however, a thorough soaking of 1-2 hours is usually sufficient. After the timber has been soaked, or bled, if the rich brown colour is preferred it is recommended that the furniture be oiled at this stage.
