The majority of Blackbutt timber has a straight grain making it popular for decking, cladding and joinery. Occasionally the grain can be interlocked or will contain gum veins which, when used for the right purpose, can create a spectacular look. The Blackbutt timber texture is generally even.
Blackbutt is an easy timber to work with. It can be stained, oiled and polished without fuss and will cause minimal issues during machining. If you are considering painting your Blackbutt timber, be aware that it can have a tendency to surface check after it’s painted. The increased level of extractives in mature wood may present some issues with adhesives. These extractives can also produce staining on painted surfaces if the timber is exposed to extreme weather.
