I am busy with the Billing La Toulannaise (think its an old kit) and from what I can gather, the planking wood is ABACHI. Please correct me if I am wrong

 

I have some additional work I want to do and need a matching wood which is slightly darker. Can anyone recommend a matching wood based on their experiences.

 

Just as a further aside, this wood would need to be able to be bent so a fine grain would be preferable. I am going to be blunt and also ask for a good US supplier thereof for us folk stuck out here in the sticks in South Africa

 

Any help appreciated

Regards

Jeremy

Hi Jeremy,

 

If you're looking for wood you could try the following German wood suppliers :-

www.massiv-holz-werkstatt.de

www.arkowood.de

I've bought wood from the top one,excellent range,quality wood and service. A bit

closer than the U.S. to Cape Town. No connection to that business BTW.

 

Regards,

P.S. forgot to mention both supply strips and planks

There's other names for that wood so if you can't find it under abachi, check the other names:  http://www.woodworkerssource.com/online_show_wood.php?wood=Triplochiton scleroxylon
