FSC certified Roble wood from Bolivia
Roble comes from Chiquitania dry forest in South East Bolivia, as opposed to a wet forest. The dry forests are ideal for harvesting strong and long lasting wood; therefore it is a very strong hardwood which is light yellow in colour. It has a smooth lustre and texture with a closely interlocked grain, Roble has excellent machining and turning qualities, finishes and polishes well. It has a durability of up to 25 years with manufacturers warranty of 10 years. Manufactured in Alexander Rose own factory, Alexander Rose Roble benches are made using only 100% pure timber. Its strength is similar to Teak and Oak. Roble timber is slow grown, and is harvested after 80 - 100 years. If left untreated Roble will mellow down to a silver grey appearance. Our Roble is FSC® 100% certified and is sourced from Bolivia. Our water-based protector and/or Timber Treatment Plus is recommended to treat Roble furniture.
