In the US LVL is probably going to be easier to source, appears to be similar enough.

I know back when she was starting out as a writer at Pop WWing Megan made a bench from it. Let s say it was far better to make beams for a home, than as a woodworking wood.

That LVL does look interesting and like it may have some similarities.

Since they don’t talk about the timber used to make it one may not be getting the same uniformity as with the Baubuche. But for all I know it may be as good. I couldn’t get their dealer locator to show any suppliers in the Americas (it could be my failure rather than theirs). It may be primarily an Australian distribution although I did manage to find one location which is probably in Southeast Asia.

Interesting that their laminations typically have the grain oriented in the same direction in all layers. This may not be so good for tabletops and such. I think some Baubuche is the same.

I’m betting that your suggestion that the LVL is not a great choice for woodworking is correct and I’m betting Baubuche is similarly not ideal as well as being Unobtainium (for me).
