These bangkirai stools are limited, first in first served, so don’t miss out!
Every now and then, one of our people out sourcing in the villages and towns comes up with something interesting. So it happened again this week, when one of our collectors discovered 50 old stools made of bangkirai.
Bangkirai (shorea laeviis) is a heavy timber. It was often used as railway sleepers, or to build bridges and ships because of it’s great strength and resistance to borer and termite attack. These days, it is commonly used for decking and patio. The bangkirai trees grow all over the island of Borneo, and reach a height of 50 m and a diameter of 2 m. They are big.
These stools are very sturdy in construction, and the timbers are quite thick. As well as a garden bench, they would make idea work trestles or planter stands.
We only have a limited supply of these, and when they are sold, we can’t get any more at this price. It’s first in first served, so don’t miss out!
