Ancient Kauri Wood

Ancient Kauri (also called "Swamp Kauri") are trees that have been buried in a peat swamp in New Zealand's North Island for many years.  The preserving properties of the swamp have kept the wood in great condition all this time.  In some cases, darker outlines on the surface of the ground indicate the location and general shape/size of the submerged trees, which are often VERY large.

Stout Woodworks is very happy to now offer reclaimed Ancient Kauri wood in our rings!
