A/B GRADE RUBBER WOOD
B/C GRADE RUBBER WOOD
C/D GRADE RUBBER WOOD
Made in Vietnam, Thailand, and Malaysia
UV roll coat finished and sprayed top edges.
We would propose cut two types of programs
The Rubberwood grows on plantations in Vietnam, Thailand, and Malaysia is indigenous to each country, is plentiful in supply, and therefore sustainable. While Rubberwood trees grow they extract latex from the tree to be used for rubber tires, gloves, etc… After approx. 21 years the tree no longer yields latex and they cut it down to then be used for cabinet and furniture parts and then replant new trees.
Dovetail tooling with Rubberwood is the same as is used with Birch because densities are similar.
Chinese Poplar drawer parts made in Vietnam
A GRADE CHINESE POPLAR
B GRADE CHINESE POPLAR
C GRADE CHINESE POPLAR
The Poplar grows on plantations, is sustainable and the lumber is exported from China to Vietnam
In Vietnam we machine and UV roll coat/tint the Poplar a yellow/brown color so it appears like Birch
Chinese Poplar does not have the purples and greens like the USA Poplar. Instead it has some occasional brown streaks.
You would need different dovetail tooling with Poplar because it is softer than Birch. We could help identify tooling manufactures if needed.
Birch drawer parts
A GRADE BIRCH
B GRADE BIRCH
C GRADE BIRCH
Vietnam parts made from lumber from Latvia; this is harvested in Latvia
Vietnam parts made from lumber from Russia lumber thru China
There is no law against this or Russian lumber in general no matter where it comes from. China can pay Russia with Yuan. We cannot pay Russia in dollars, so this is what makes it available.
Also Vietnam parts made from lumber from Russia lumber shipped to Vietnam thru China and then edge glued by other Vietnam factories.
