    I was thinking of using it for internal bulkheads. It has a price advantage over Gaboon and seems to have similar properties. The devil can be in the detail though so I was interested to hear other peoples thoughts on what it was like to use.

    I actually emailed the importer a while back asking about stress grading, etc. He couldn't give me an accurate answer as apparently there hasn't been any testing as such. He thought that it would probably rate around F11, which would make sense given that hoop pine marine is F17, but couldn't be certain.

    I'm planning to get some myself soon for a small project.

    ETA: Email went like this...................

    If it helps, I can supply testing data on Bruynzeel Hechthout to EN310 (Wood-based panels — Determination of modulus of elasticity in bending and of bending strength). Obviously more expensive than pink satinwood or kokoda but fully compliant to BS1088 and Lloyd's Register certified as such.

    Send me an email if you would like a copy of the data.
