Bangladeshi wooden furniture manufacturing companies are using different types of timbers and boards as their major wooden raw material to make their furniture. Most of the timbers are local. Among them, Mahogany timber, Treated Mango timber, Acacia timber, Neem wood, Koroi wood, Rain tree timber, Epil epil timber, Rubber wood, Jessore Teak wood, Chittagong teak wood etc are remarkable.
