  • More about Ancient Kauri wood in Laurie's own words: "Thousands of years ago, for reasons that will probably always remain a mystery, some of the kauri forests that grew over much of the North of the North Island of New Zealand were destroyed. These trees were buried under peat swamps where they have remained undisturbed, and well preserved, until recent times. There are differing theories regarding what caused these events but whatever the cause, these trees have been sealed from the air and have been preserved for thousands of years.
    Exactly how many thousands is open to debate but logs have been independently carbon dated from 3,000 to over 45,000 years old depending on the area that it is extracted. It is the oldest workable timber in the world. It is not petrified but can be sawed, planed and turned like many other species, although it can be problematic and experience is required to use it to its full potential in musical instruments."
