Why do you use Spotted Gum?

We’ve selected premium Spotted Gum as it is one of Australia‚Äôs premium native hardwoods that has a striking appearance and a high degree of natural durability and strength. Architects and designers throughout the world value Spotted Gum timbers for their back-sawn grain structure, attractive markings and vibrant colour palette. The colour varies with this species from pale grey browns and soft creams to a rich chocolate brown. A very tough timber, its frequent wavy grain can produce an attractive and highly valued fiddleback effect.

Why do you use Blackbutt?

It is a stunning timber that combines natural beauty and strength and is used for structural, exterior and interior applications. Blackbutt has an attractive colouring from cream to pale brown, sometimes with a slight tinge of pink. Its grain is usually straight and texture is medium and even. To highlight the natural timber beauty we recommend clear varnish or light stain, painting has a tendency to surface checking.
