Intriguing new range of FSC® Certified Tropical Hardwoods from John Boddy Timber

John Boddy Timber continue to broaden their range of FSC Certified Tropical Hardwoods to cover an entire range of applications. Managing Director Frank Boddy has established strong sources of direct supply in different parts of Central America where species and harvested and cultivated in strict accordance with FSC regulations and the associated Chains of Custody. Apart from the increasingly popular Central American Mahogany and Cedar stocked at the Riverside Sawmills in Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire , John Boddy Timber are now importing lesser known species with versatile applications. For the first time Tropical Hardwoods like Cabbage Bark, Danto and Santa Maria are being stocked in commercial quantities. Cabbage Bark can be used in applications such as worktops where the finished timber has a similar visual appearance to Teak. In much the same way Danto is a likely substitute for Iroko and the grain, colour and properties of Santa Maria offer a real alternative to Sapele. As more and more furniture and joinery specialists look for interesting Certified alternatives for bespoke projects the source of supply offered by John Boddy Timber gathers growing interest and popularity.
