Mukuklungu

Mukulungu a/k/a African Redwood

(Autranella Congolensis)


Some facts on mukulungu decking:

It is the best decking originating out of Africa.
It mostly goes into Europe where it is highly prized!
It competes with the best decking in the world – Ipe.

-It is well respected by all due to its high silica content and uniform color as well as longevity and density!
It is referred to here in the USA as “African Redwood“ but has nothing in common with the redwood we know other than for its longevity and similar color.
It is also setting itself up in Europe as the likely alternative to Ipe if Ipe is ever banned!

It’s one of the few serious decks that has a monochromatic color that does not vary.

PRICING:

500 LFt or more of 2” x 6” $4.50/LFt

Less than 500 LFt of 2” x 6” @ $5.50/LFt

Like any other tropical deck, once you build your deck then you can do the railing system as follows:

Top rails: 2×6
Under top rails: Two 2×4’s
Corner posts: 4×4’s

Ipe Decking for Docks

Kabukalli Decking

Kabukalli  (Goupia Glabra).

Kabukalli is similar to Ipe but not as expensive and has tremendous density and longevity.  It is certified FSC!  A Legit source and great provenance.

Properties/Appearance: Exceptionally high strength. Highly resistant to insects, decay, fire and marine organisms. Dries slowly. Checking, warping and splitting may occur especially if not seasoned properly. A UV protective finish minimalizes checking and splitting. Blunting effect on tools moderate to high. Planing is difficult. Glues well. Pre-drill before screwing. Polishes satisfactorily.

Uses: A heavy hard timber suitable for exacting conditions. Excellent for rafters, general construction, ship building, keels, pilings, piers, decking, hand rails, flooring, and raised beds.

There is no more kabukalli in Asheville.  There is some available in New Orleans.  If you are interested in purchasing kabukalli in Louisiana, please call Mark at 828-808-3617.

Itauba Decking

Itauba Porch Decking and Ceilings

 

Mike Kelly, one of the largest independent fabric dealers in America, recently had this to say about Itauba porch decking and ceilings:
 
It turned out great! Great thanks! Scroungers’ wood is what made and set this porch project off. These pictures do not do it justice!”
 
Mike had originally planned to use his recent purchase of Itauba for his porch decking, but upon seeing it in person, decided to use it as his porch ceiling. And he was not disappointed, as stated above.
 
You will also see three photos of an entire wrap-around porch of Itauba 1 x 4 (3 ¼” x 3/4”) recently completed on the largest Air BNB in Asheville. It is stunningly beautiful!
 
Years from now you will be saying, “Olivari brought Itauba into the USA in 2018! He has known about this product for a while and said it would possibly be the ‘new Ipe’ as it looks quite the same and has the same longevity.”
