Siberian Larch is a type of wood that comes from Russia. It is a popular and widely used wood species in Europe. It is straight and easy to process. Siberian Larch can be used in various outdoor projects and is affordable compared to tropical hardwood.
Compared to the European variant, Siberian Larch has smaller knots and a finer structure. This makes Siberian Larch the highest quality Larch wood species. Because these trees grow in a colder climate, the wood has a higher density and durability than European Larch. Façade cladding and wall cladding are popular applications, but the wood is also used as a decking or garden partition.
Siberian Larch originally has a warm golden-yellow hue, which will gray evenly over time. This is in contrast to European Larch, which is characterized by its salmon-pink colour. Especially the typical drawing of the wood provides the warm and charming appearance of these planks. The wood has small knots between 1 and 2 cm.
Siberian Larch is a type of wood that is easy to use to work. The planks and beams must be pre-drilled before bolting. In addition, we always advise to use stainless steel screws and fasteners, this prevents stains on the wood. We do not recommend gluing, because shrinkage stresses occur with this wood.
Note: Deep milling, sawing lengthwise or sawing again can expose stresses. These stresses may have arisen during drying and processing. This is one of the reasons why we recommend adding 10% wood to your order. This way you can be sure that you have enough material to work with.
