About Red Gum Timber
Given its wide availability, red gum timber has been frequently used in railway sleepers, heavy construction, framing, flooring, wood tuning and fencing. In fact, it was used as a street paver in Sydney during the late 1800s.
The timber boasts an extremely high density and the grains are tightly interlocked with frequent gum veins. As a result, this timber is an excellent choice for applications that require visual aesthetics and durability at the same time.
The charm of red gum timber is best reflected in furniture. The stunning, deep red tone and the fiddleback figure of red gum make each piece of furniture distinct and unique.
Commonly found across inland Australia, usually along rivers, this timber is often used in joinery and furniture to showcase its unique, vibrant colour. And its natural strength makes it a natural choice for decking and structural posts.
