These boards can be immense in size, much bigger than boards from any tree living today. These trees are so huge you could finish an orchestra hall from one tree, imagine your design options.

Trunk wood is an excellent choice for trimming out an elegant installation or finishing with that touch of understated class. It is ideal for creating engineered designs that make a strong formal statement.

The under-earth wood is the wild, dark and complex brother from below. The huge dark heavy wild roots are fantastic shapes swirls and openings. Colors, density and rich wild patterns change in surprising and unpredictable ways. This can be challenging wood to work with and it produces stunning works.

Installations that incorporate these natural curves are guaranteed to open eyes.

What is “Whitebait”?

whitebait_closeupWhitebait refers to the iridescent qualities of the grain in the Ancient Kauri where this activity is found.

Whitebait is very interesting, quite beautiful, and quite rare.

The name Whitebait comes from a similar sight that is seen in schools of small fish (Whitebait fish) that swim in the sub-tropical ocean near to where the Ancient Kauri trees are recovered. As schools of Whitebait fish swim, the brilliant shimmer of light one second, that disappears, and shimmer of light again is exactly what is seen in the Whitebait grain of the Ancient Kauri wood.

This beautiful, powerfully iridescent grain activity is an interesting confluence in the grain of the wood. Satin-like cords of grain with subtle shading of color tones makes this a highly sought after characteristic, found only in Ancient Kauri wood.


Whitebait is very rare, is difficult to dry, and thus is expensive. Considered the Best of the Best, pricing ranges from $100.00 per board foot to $60.00 per board foot, depending on the size of the order and the amount of Whitebait activity in the piece itself.

Please contact us for additional information on this fantastic opportunity to purchase some of this incredible and rare wood.

We have done our best to illustrate the fantastic feature in this wood, but the iridescent characteristic of the Whitebait grain is extremely difficult to photograph: the very iridescence that makes it so exceptional tends to fool the image-capturing capabilities of digital cameras. We have captured it as best we can on both still and video camera.

We are happy to supply you with finished samples and support information for your proposals.

We look forward to hearing from you.
