  • Rock Maple | Monaro Timber & Joinery

    American Rock Maple American hard maple, as the name suggests, is a hard, heavy wood with a fine texture that is high in all strength properties except for stiffness, which is medium. It is a hardwearing timber, making it ideal for flooring applications where there is a high volume of foot traffic, such as gymnasiums or concert halls. It also has a very good steam bending classification. American hard maple is considered to be quite difficult to work with due to its blunting effect. Pre-boring is recommended when nailing or screwing. The timber does not take glue well. When care is taken, the timber machines and turns well, and it can be stained and polished to achieve an extremely attractive finish. Recommended uses : American hard maple is used in a wide range of interior applications such as flooring, panelling, cabinet making, table tops, joinery, stairs, handrails, mouldings and doors. Its hardwearing properties make it ideal for flooring in areas with a high volume of foot traffic. It is also used in boat building and in the construction of musical instruments and skateboards.

Sapwood is usually white to light brown in colour. The presence of a wavy grain can produce an attractive fiddle-back figure. The wood has a slightly greasy feel, a characteristic that aids machining and boring. Spotted Gum components that are 18mm thick or greater do not require fire retardant treatment for use in construction in bush-fire prone areas. Recommended uses: Spotted Gum has a long history of use in engineering applications such as wharf and bridge construction, railway sleepers, cross-arms and mining timbers. It is used for a variety of applications, including structural building members, such as posts and poles, and for framing, flooring, lining, decking and cladding. It is also used in boatbuilding and is the primary Australian timber used for the handles of tools and implements that are subject to high impact forces. Spotted gum is a suitable carving and woodturning timber and is used in the manufacture of both indoor and outdoor furniture. Outdoor furniture in spotted Gum has consistently won industry awards in Australia and is exported to destinations around the world.

  • Heavy Veneer Products | Monaro Timber & Joinery

    Monaro Timber Heavy Veneer Products Heavy Veneer is a process owned and perfected by Monaro Timber & Joinery. It is the process of applying a veneer of timber over an MDF core that is thick enough to give the feel of solid timber, but thin enough to minimize any movement that occurs in solid timber. We apply this technique to bench tops, allowing you to have a 100mm thick bench top as opposed to only 40mm (the maximum recommended thickness in solid timber). We also apply this method to timber step treads, large posts to give the appearance of a large solid post, doors and shelving.

  • Western Red Cedar | Monaro Timber & Joinery

    Western Red Cedar Western red cedar is a large softwood that grows in British Columbia and some of the nearby western states of the USA. Western red cedar will remain dimensionally stable under most weather conditions and is not prone to shrinkage or swelling. Due to its versatility, it can be used for both internal and external applications such as cladding, linings, joinery, windows and roofing shingles. Natural preservatives provide resistance to fungus and insect attack, while its low density offers very good thermal insulation qualities. Western red cedar also delivers impressive acoustic properties. The heartwood ranges from a pale brown through to a richer dark brown. The sapwood is a paler yellowish white colour. It has a fine texture and straight grain with growth rings often visible. A durable, yet soft timber, western red cedar has a good workability. It cuts, machines and glues well and can also be painted, stained and polished. Precautions should be taken when sanding western red cedar as the sawdust can cause irritation for some people. It nails and screws well, however if timber is damp it is corrosive to iron and copper, so hot-dipped galvanised nails/screws should be used where required, and any copper plumbing, fittings or sheathing isolated from contact with the wood. Western red cedar can be brittle along the end grain and sharp cutters are recommended due to its soft nature ​ Recommended uses: Cladding, joinery, windows & door trim ​ Not recommended for: steam bending ​

  • Brushbox | Monaro Timber & Joinery

    Brushbox Its heartwood can vary in appearance, from a greyish pink through to a reddish brown, while the sapwood is usually paler in colour.

Brush box has a poor workability in part due to its density, interlocked grain and the presence of silica. It does however provide good resistance to wear and splintering. The natural waxiness may cause problems with some adhesives but provides a very good base for paints and stains. ​ Recommended uses: flooring, cladding ​

  • Sapele | Monaro Timber & Joinery

    Sapele Heartwood is a golden to dark reddish brown. Color tends to darken with age. Besides the common ribbon pattern seen on quartersawn boards, Sapele is also known for a wide variety of other figured grain patterns, such as: pommele, quilted, mottled, wavy, beeswing, and fiddleback ​ Recommended uses: furniture, cabinetry, flooring, boatbuilding, musical instruments, turned objects, and other small wooden specialty items ​ Not recommended for: Sapele can be troublesome to work in some machining operations, (i.e., planing, routing, etc.), resulting in tearout due to its interlocked grain. It will also react when put into direct contact with iron, becoming discolored and stained.
