Sydney Blue Gum is one of the more popular eastern Australian red timbers. Colours vary within the middle range of reds, brown hues are also common. The timber is relatively hardy and has an attractive lustre which can result in an impressive polish.
Timber is a natural material. Variation in appearance and properties is an enticing part of designing and building with real timber! Each fibre in each plank in each project is uniquely designed by nature. We strive in good faith to present you with the most accurate portrayal of what you can expect in your timber by using images, past job portfolios, detailed information and samples, the other part of this responsibility is advising you that your timber's appearance WILL vary from these guides. Please use this information as a guide only.

• Continuous solid timber through the entire thickness of the board with a ~5mm wear segment on top

Timber has many natural features that tell the story of the living tree. The features seen in Sydney Blue Gum are:
• Gum Veins & gum pockets
• Insect trails
• Surface checking
• Burrs (aka burls)
This product is available in the following grades:
Classic grade; is mostly clean boards with minimal natural features. Classic grade gives a more uniform, clean, sophisticated and minimal appearance. Classic grade can be thought of as the top third cleanest timber and is equivalent to a 'select grade'.
Standard & better grade; has a wider range of features having mixed cleaner boards and moderately featured boards. It can be thought of as the top 50% cleanest boards.
Australiana grade; offers a moderate amount of natural features. Australiana grade shows off the more natural side of a timber species while not being too busy. Australiana grade can be thought of as the in-between third cleanest timber and is equivalent to a 'standard grade' or 'medium feature grade'.
Natural grade; has the highest amount of natural features. A rough, rustic look that shows off the timber in its rawest natural beauty. As a rule of thumb, you can expect at least one sizeable feature in every board. This is equivalent to a 'feature grade', 'high feature grade' or 'rustic grade'.
19mm solid strip floorboards are typically suitable for gluing and nailing over joist, battens, plywood, particleboard, or existing timber floors. They come in a raw state and need to be sanded and finished after installation. THIS IS NOT A DIY FRIENDLY PRODUCT, only an experienced installer and sander or a very experienced carpenter should attempt the installation of solid timber floorboards.
Timber is a truly renewable resource, a mature tree is harvested, a young tree grows in its place and a few decades later is ready for harvesting again. Australia's vast forests are carefully, conservatively managed to ensure a responsible amount of wood is harvested. Timber uses a relatively small amount of energy during processing compared to other building materials like metals and concrete, the timber itself is a carbon storer and has a long working life.
