Mindi wood is cultivated in the tropics


Despite being one of the largest export commodities in Indonesia, the origin of mindi wood is not from Indonesia. Mindi trees were first planted in North America, but their adaptive nature allows mindi trees to be grown in environments with different climatic conditions. Until now mindi trees are widely cultivated in tropical countries such as India, Myanmar, and Indonesia.

Mindi trees can also grow in various types of environments, both in the open and in the wilderness. The environment in which the tree grows affects the characteristics and color of the resulting wood. Trees that grow deep in the forest produce mindi wood which is darker in color.

Mindi wood has a smooth wood texture


From the book Business and Cultivation of 18 Wood, the quality standard of mindi wood is categorized as having strong resistance II-III, which is equivalent to mahogany, sungkai, and red meranti wood. Although not so sturdy, mindi wood is also resistant to fungi and insects. So, it doesn't matter if you want to use furniture made of mindi wood inside and outside the house.

Ideal for use as furniture material


Several advantages possessed by mindi wood, ranging from smoothness of texture, resistance to insects, and light weight make mindi wood an ideal material for furniture. Furniture made of mindi wood not only features a neat design, but is also easy to move.

Finishing variations can also be applied to mindi wood. To protect the smooth texture, you can coat it with a finishing that gives a glossy effect. If you want to get a rustic effect, mindi wood that is not coated with finishing actually looks more exotic.

Not good for application as a construction material


Besides being processed into furniture, mindi wood is also used for coating designs for floors, doors, and window frames. However, due to its poor durability, it will be quite risky if mindi wood is used as a building frame material. Dry conditions cause the water content to decrease so that it has the potential to cause cracking and physical expansion of wood.

Furniture made of mindi wood can be the right choice. In addition to its several advantages, mindi wood can also be obtained at relatively cheap and affordable prices.
