Mindi wood (Melia azedarach) is mostly harvested from farmed projects in Indonesia. It’s similar to Red Oak.
Mindi is naturally resistant to decay and fungus as it’s a family member of the cedar. Mindi is a light colored wood with brown streaks. Mindi grows darker in as in the colors found in teak.
Smooth or a rustic finish can be made, mindi can be finished without primer to bring out the textured or rustic appearance. Carpenters favor mindi for its workability. Mindi, due to it's straight-grain, nearly knot-free texture, is also used for indoor.
In Indonesia, the Department of Forests encourage and enforce sustainable wood growth and harvesting practices.
