Someone was pulling your plonker, there is no pineapple woodJonathan S":18bxy2fp said:I was told it was pineapple wood but having researched it couldn't find much.
Was also told the locals used it in construction, oh and also it was dried in the sun vertically.
Though now you mention that wood is used in building it is almost certainly coconut wood
That is used by unscrupulous builders if they can get away with it. It's an appalling construction material as it rots within 5 years or so, but is extremely cheap so people still use it.
Though in the piece you show it's probably as good as any other wood as it won't get outdoor exposure nor be subject to termites.
