Yellow Stringybark

(Eucalyptus muellerana)

Description

A medium to large hardwood that grows in southern NSW and eastern Victoria. The heartwood is a yellow brown with a paler sapwood. Gum vein and bug holes are a common feature of most Stringybarks.

Workability

It machines well to produce excellent flooring. Best glued with our 501 polyurethane but will hang on with other adhesives.

Applications

Once mainly used for heavy construction and wood chips, we now have available a limited quantity of furniture boards, heaps of flooring, decking and F27 kiln dried structural hardwood. Fantastic for outdoor structures such as pergolas and decks. Great for matching hand rails and step treads.

Availability

DAR KD hardwood up to 290 x 45. Also green sawn hardwood, cut to order. Plenty of flooring and decking.

Hardness

Janka 8.5 850kg/m3.
