    Default alternatives to Merbau in Adelaide?

    Hi, I am looking for some Merbau decking timber (or with square edge if possible?) in 70x19 but not having any luck - everywhere only seems to sell Kapur.
    What have other people in Adelaide had luck with recently that looks close to Merbau?
    Bone Timber have a timber called Kempas, but I dont know anything about that one. Im considering the Forest Reds at Bunnings.

    Try Softwoods - they gave me these prices:

    68x15 Merbau $3.97 P/m

    Lengths that it comes in is 2.4 , 3.0


    Merbau 140x19 (stock we have is ribbed on one side ) $10.98 pm
    And only sold in Random lengths I.e 2.4 , 3.0 , 3.3 , 3.6 , 3.9 , 4.2

    And bunnings has Merbau 90x19 also

    Thanks, I ended up going with Stratco (big shed at St Mary's).
    They had Merbau decking 70x19 for $4.19 p/m.
    I also found the same size at Bunnings Woodville for $3.67 but they were all random lengths jumbled up with 90 wide and didnt appear to be in great condition (werent nicely stacked like they were at Stratco), and were probably warped more.
