Product Description

Yandles Hardwood Timber Planking Craft Pack - Exotic Woods! Each pack is made up 3 Timbers:

  • Panga Panga x1
  • Teak x1
  • African Rosewood x1

This Timber Craft Pack is perfect for Woodworking projects, model making, guitar/instrument making and crafts.

Dimensions:

Please note, no two pieces of timber are the same, your order will be for 3 randomly selected pieces. Whilst the utmost care is taken to ensure there are no splits / shakes we cannot guarantee the figuring/sapwood content. One piece may have minimal sap whilst another has slightly more. We cannot guarantee the flatness of the timber, nor grain structure. Please be aware of this when purchasing.

Sizes are rough estimates and can vary between the piece. The MINIMUM size you will receive will be 1m Long x 4" Wide x 20mm thick (unless selecting a planed option).  Please note, all our timber is cut to 1" and then planed on one face, the average thickness is between 22-24mm thick.

All pieces will be rough planed one face & sawn on one face. We can offer a planning service for an extra charge, please use the options above, please be aware, the timber is planed on one face on the shelf & can be swiftly dispatched in most instances if selecting a planed service this can take up to 10-working days to be processed through our sawmill & the thickness will further be reduced.

 

Panga Panga:

Heartwood is a very dark brown with black streaksHas a straight grain and a coarse texture. Panga Panga also has very large pores that can present a challenge to fill if a perfectly smooth/levelled finish is desired. Endgrain: Diffuse-porous; large to very large pores in no specific arrangement, very few; solitary and radial multiples of 2-3; brown or yellow deposits occasionally present; medium rays not visible without lens, normal spacing; parenchyma winged, confluent, and banded (bands typically as wide as the pores). Rot Resistance: Very durable, and resistant to termite attack. Workability: Can be difficult to work with hand and power tools. Blunts tool edges. Can sand unevenly due to differences in density between light and dark areas. Can easily get splinters when handling this wood, which tend to go septic (see safety information below). Odour: Panga Panga has a faint, slightly bitter scent when being worked. Allergies/Toxicity: Although severe reactions are quite uncommon, breathing Wenge wood dust (closely related to Panga Panga) has been reported to cause central nervous system effects, irritation of the skin and eyes, and is a sensitizer. Also, Wenge splinters tend to take longer to heal and are more likely to go septic (get infected) than splinters from other woods. See the articles Wood Allergies and Toxicity and Wood Dust Safety for more information. Pricing/Availability: Tends to be on the high side, close to other exotic tropical hardwoods such as Cocobolo or Zebrawood. Sustainability: This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. Common Uses: Panga Panga and Wenge can both be dark enough to be used as substitutes for ebony

Teak:

Heartwood is a medium reddish-brown, commonly with black streaks. Sharply defined sapwood is a pale pinkish yellow.Grain is straight to interlocked, with a fine, even texture and low natural lustre. Endgrain: Diffuse-porous; solitary and radial multiples; small to medium pores in no specific arrangement, moderately numerous; yellowish-brown mineral/gum deposits present; parenchyma vasicentric, banded; narrow to medium rays, spacing normal to fairly close. Rot Resistance: Rated as very durable; good insect resistance, though sapwood is prone to insect attack. Workability: Can be difficult to work because of high cutting resistance—saws slowly, and has a tendency to ride up over jointer knives. Also, due to its high silica content, cutting edges become severely blunted. However, the wood is stable in service, and glues, turns, and finishes well. Odour: No characteristic odour.

Pricing/Availability: Although Rhodesian Teak is an important timber, it’s not commonly exported. It’s sometimes available as flooring or as narrow boards; expect prices to be in the mid to upper range for an imported hardwood.

Sustainability: This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices, but is reported by the IUCN as being near threatened. Technically it doesn’t meet the Red List criteria of a vulnerable or endangered species, but is close to qualifying and/or may qualify in the near future.

"Nice flat boards. Ideal for my purposes, making lamps and small items of furniture. The black walnut was not available but I was contacted and agreed to a substitution of American cherry which is lovely. Delighted they were able to deliver to Northern Ireland for a reasonable cost "
