Merbau is a medium brown color wood with reddish/orange highlights with a course graining. One of the distinctive properties of this wood is that the surface of the boards may have yellow "flecking" in the pores; thus, when finished, the wood may appear almost flecked with gold. Merbau undergoes a medium to large degree of color change darkening over time to deeper orangey brown.
