Balckbutt Timber

Blackbutt (Eucalyptus Pilularis). A beautiful hardwood, Blackbutt presents a relatively straight and uniform grain with an appealing colour palette, ranging from cream to pale brown with a hint of pink. Contemporary by nature, when freshly cut the truewood is pale brown with a hint of pink, whilst the sapwood (although sometimes indistinguishable from the truewood) is usually slightly paler in colour. With a reputation for excellence, our Class One Durability Blackbutt is in high demand within the commercial building industry. Our recycled Blackbutt is graded according to the Interim Industry Standards whilst our new certified Blackbutt is AFS approved (Australian Forestry Standard).

Tallowwood

Tallowwood (Eucalyptus Microcorys). Tallowwood has a wide variety of uses however particularly impressive results are achieved when featured as internal flooring and/or cladding. Other applications include decking, linings, exposed structures, poles, piles, bridge timbers, joinery, turnery, outdoor furniture and boat building. Tallowwood heartwood is pale to darker yellow-brown with a noticeably lighter, almost white sapwood. This wood has a fairly coarse texture with an interlocking grain. As the word ‘tallow’ suggests, the timber of this species feels greasy to the touch.

Spotted Gum

Spotted Gum (Corymbia Maculata). Once predominantly used only as a structural timber, considering its natural beauty and sheer strength, its not surprising Spotted Gum has found favour in many aesthetic, and architectural applications with extremely impressive results. Because of its significant versatility and durability, you will find Spotted Gum used in a wide variety of applications. From building and construction, including structural components, flooring, cladding, and decking, right through to furniture (indoor and outdoor), landscaping, boat building, poles, beams, the list goes on. Widely used for power poles, bridge timbers and general construction, Spotted Gum is one of the most widely available recycled timbers in Australia today. In the future, this species will become more readily available from Australian hardwood plantations as a result of its growing popularity.
