Blackbutt Timber Technical Information
Blackbutt :: Eucalyptus pilularis
Blackbutt is a commonly grown hardwood that has attractive colouring from cream to pale brown, sometimes with a slight tinge of pink. Its grain is usually straight and texture is medium and even. Blackbutt is a versatile timber and is used for structural, exterior and interior applications. It is used for cladding, internal and external flooring, decking, joinery, landscaping and furniture. Blackbutt is also used in the manufacture of plywood. Blackbutt can be stained, painted or polished but there can be issues with painting because of its tendency to surface check.
