Coconut Palm (Cocos nucifera), is also called Indian Palm or Porcupine Wood. It is an exotic species which comes from the Pacific Islands, including Fiji, the Philippines and South East Asia. There, it is a very important feature of the natural and cultivated landscape. There are some coconut palm plantations in Far North Queensland.
In the past, the fruit has been the basis of economic interest. Because of the large numbers of overmature, unproductive trees, coconut wood has generated considerable interest. Coconut has no annual growth rings, no rays, no heartwood, no branches and no knots. Its fibrous nature makes it hard to cut unless green – a quite unusual prospect for woodworkers. It is durable only in dry conditions.
It can be used for general structural purposes: flooring, window frames, tool handles, furniture, carving, turnery. Softer material (from higher up the stem) can be used for wall panelling and internal trim.
Coconut flooring is 100% solid hardwood come from sustainable sources (Cocos Nucifera) spread in all over Indonesia. Each area naturally has it own characteristic, color, and grain which perform unique impression.
The wood came from senile coconut trees – age above 50 years which does not bear fruits anymore and should be replanted. For many decades these trees were simply burnt. Now, through special treatment we turn these woods into beautiful flooring, parquet, beams, and Finger Joint Laminating Board (FJLB) used for housing, shopping center, office and industrial applications.
