Ancient New Zealand Kauri

New Zealand Kauri – Agathis australis-  a timber sought through the ages, whether it be for ship masts and spars, workbenches, house stumps, or these days, digging out Kauri trees that had fallen into swamps which are found and excavated, sold as swamp Kauri.

Tane Mahuta (Lord of the Forest) is a Kauri, 45m tall, 13.8m girth, but is no match for the trees of old, felled in days of old, with girths measured between 21 and 23m in girth.  Imagine those puppies as slabs. Or rather than imagining…….

Grain patterns so intense you could surf the waves
