About Abodo

The Future of Wood

Abodo crafts timbers with lasting beauty that are safe for people and the environment.

Many exterior timbers are harvested from unsustainable old growth forests or are treated with harmful chemicals. Our timbers stand the test of time, they are beautiful, durable and rapidly renewable.

Formed in 2001 by the Gudsell family, Abodo remains a New Zealand family business with a purpose owned by brothers Daniel and Nathan Gudsell.

Lifetime beauty: Abodo timbers are crafted to be enjoyed for years to come. Designed to age with grace, our timbers have exceptional weatherability and maintain their durability and beauty for a lifetime.

With tomorrow in mind:
Our timbers are harvested from New Zealand’s FSC® certified rapidly renewable plantation forests. They are ethically crafted with respect from beginning to end – allowing us to meet today’s increasing needs without disadvantaging future generations.
