I live in Thailand and the most workable, cost effective wood sheet (8ft x 4ft) or (1200×2400) I can find is a wood called ‘Rubber wood’. It comes in thickness’s of 15, 18 and 20 mm. It is a light wood which I imagine will take up stain very well.
I’m trying to get a good finish with the wood, such as, a clear matt finish, a darker stain, like oak or teak and then in some cases I would like a polyurethane finish to protect the wood when using it in a kitchen or a wet room.
Has anyone worked with this wood and achieved good results?
Your feedback would be much appreciated,
