Blackbutt Timber Perth WA

Natural colour

Pale Brown to Golden Yellow

Common uses

Alternatives (similar colour)

Victorian Ash, Spotted Gum


Blackbutt has an even texture. The grain can be interlocked but it is generally straight, making it appealing for interior use applications such as flooring and joinery. Gum veins and surface checking is to be expected.


Care needs to be taken when drying as Blackbutt is prone to surface checking on the tangential surface. Blackbutt can be stained, painted or polished but there can be issues with painting because of its tendency to surface check. The high extractives of mature wood can cause problems with some adhesives, but this is much less of an issue with young re-growth wood. These extractives can also cause staining on painted surfaces after exposure to the weather. Blackbutt machines well but is only fair for steam bending dimensional stability.
