This popular item arose from the need to supply wood in thicknesses of less than 26mm for a multitude of special purposes. It is quite rare to find rough sawn lumber under this size because of the difficulty keeping the wood flat and straight through the drying process.
This stock is re-sawn from thick material which has already been fully dried, and then accurately drum sanded to the range of thicknesses listed below. For practical reasons the range of lengths is normally 800 – 1200mm and the range of widths is normally 100 – 175mm. Sizes beyond these can be produced to special order subject to an acceptable order size.
3mm, 4mm, 6mm, 10mm and 13mm.
From 2nd January 2017 if you wish to export articles that are partly or fully made from newly listed species of Rosewood, Padauk and Bubinga then the export will need to be accompanied by a CITES re-export permit. It is possible that the importer/customer of the article may need to apply for a CITES import permit from their own authorities and this should be investigated before the export happens.
