Q. Will the timber I buy be stable?

Q. How hard is the timber that I am buying?

The Janka hardness test measures how hard a type of timber is. All Australian Timbers have a Janka Rating and some Imported Timbers are rated in this manner as well.
A Janka Rating of 2 indicates a Softwood while a Janka Rating of 15 indicates a very hard timber.
