Timber Options

We use a huge variety of Australian Timbers as well as some imported classics. While we can source over 20 different timber species, we try to keep it pretty simple and find that using the following timbers will usually achieve any sort of look you are after. If you are after a specific timber, then please enquire and one of our friendly staff will happily oblige.

Raw Oak

Raw Oak is made using American Oak timber, which is a common medium-sized hardwood native to central North America. We then finish the American Oak with an OSMO polyx oil called RAW. This leaves the timber looking as close to the raw board look as possible, while also giving it a slight whitewash look.

A hard timber, American Oak has a Janka Rating of 6.0

American Oak

American Oak is a common medium-sized hardwood native to central North America. This imported species is popular worldwide for its fantastic character and pronounced grain patterns. It has large distinctive growth rings. Back sawn boards expose the grain in a way that shows interesting swirls and when stained they take more stain than the rest of the board making them more pronounced. American Oak timber is Creamy brown to pale brown.

It is a species that is rich in detail with an even texture and beautiful growth rings. Feature grades will also have varying degrees of gum veins which look stunning. Messmate is a well-known hardwood species that has been used in a variety of applications for decades. It grows in Tasmania and Victoria, and on the tablelands of New South Wales and southern Queensland.

Smoke

Smoke is made using American Oak, which is a common medium-sized hardwood native to central North America. We then finish the American Oak with a BLACK OSMO polyx oil, before wiping and sanding the black oil off the timber, leaving the Black oil only exposed in the swirly grain. We then finish it with 2 coats of our Matt Osmo Polyx oil for protection.

Walnut

The sapwood of walnut is creamy white, whereas the heartwood is light brown to dark chocolate brown, making the difference in colour quite distinct. Occasionally the heartwood has dark, even purple, streaks. The wood of walnut is a mixture of straight wavy or curly grain that produces its characteristic and attractive figure, sought after
by designers.

Black Oak is made using American Oak, which is a common medium-sized hardwood native to central North America. We then finish the American Oak with a BLACK OSMO polyx oil, before applying 1 coat of our Satin Osmo Polyx oil for protection. The Satin Oil gives this finish a slight shine, to pronounce the grain detail of the Black Oak.
