An imported hardwood of Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philipines. Geronggang is more consistant in colour than that of the Meranti specie and ranges from a pale pink to a deeper red. Texture is coarse and even and grain is often interlocked. Useful for many applications including internal mouldings for commercial and residential buildings and caravans, furniture, boat building and projects where a contrasting colour to the lighter timber species is required.
