I am very pleased with my Red Grandis purchase. Having never used this wood before, it appearance and use was just as described. As making a 6-foot outdoor swing entirely of 4/4 wood, laminating pieces to form 6/6 framing for the swing. the project required app. 35 board feet.
Swing just about ready to finish. Will share photo when complete. Plan to use three coats of a 50/50 blend of spar varnish and teak oil; perhaps a final coat of full strength spar varnish.
