Tasmanian Oak

Light Coloured Timber Suitable For Interior Use With Excellent Staining Properties

Tasmanian Oak is a mixture of two Eucalypt species. It ranges in colour from pale pink to brown straw. It is straight, open and even-grained with a uniform texture, usually all quartersawn for stability with excellent staining properties.

It is versatile timber perfect for both construction and interior applications, used extensively for flooring, panelling, interior joinery, architraves and skirting boards. Being a light timber, it is recognised for its excellent staining qualities, which allow ready matching with other timbers, finishes or furnishings.
