Camphor wood: This wood comes from the tropics, mostly camphor trees can be encountered in the area Kalimantan (Samarinda), this wood has a distinctive smell like camphor aroma of camphor wood so named. Strong advantages of serangat termites but weighs less weight than iron or teak wood. This wood has been so long in Indonesia become an alternative material for building materials class minimalist modern, because the price is relatively affordable, besides camphor has wood fibers are smooth and beautiful so often the choice to be made in the materials to make doors and windows in standard sizes, but the disadvantages of this type of timber when made in a door or window with high class sizes in large size, width or height exceeds the standard size is not recommended, because this wood tends to deform into expands when in use in the long term.

And the quality is pretty good with a record of select aged coconut trees that are more than 60 years or more, if the tree is still young age is not recommended to be made in building materials, because it will be easy on eating termites and other insects.

Teak wood: this species thrives in dry areas and calcareous in Indonesia, especially on the island of Central Java and East Java. Wood is often regarded as the wood fibers and the loudest and beautiful texture. Its characteristics are stable, strong and durable making it the main choice of wood as a building material.

The difference between the two is of dark red meranti severity weights tend to be heavier than the young red meranti, just make it easy on membedakanya? But what is clear in terms of quality to be made in building materials both were pretty good. According strength enough but quite a long durability of origin is not directly in contact with the ground, because this species is very sensitive to the effects of weather.
