Australian Blackwood Timber

Website

The heartwood ranges in colour from a lustrous golden-brown to reddish-dark brown with a fairly dark brown zone marking the growth rings. The grain is usually straight but may be interlocked or wavy and the texture is medium and even. The wavy grain produces a beautiful fiddle-back figure. The timber has good bending properties, but the lengths available are reasonably short.

Sustainability: This wood species is not listed in the CITES Appendices or on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Botanical Name:Acacia melanoxylon

Other Names:Australian Blackwood

Origin: Australia

Certifications Available:

Seasoning: Dries fairly easily and without undue degrade, although there is some tendency to cupping.

Working Qualities: The timber works fairly easily but cutting edges must be kept sharpened for end grain working. A reduction of cutting angle to 20º is usually beneficial in planning and moulding, particularly when curly grain is present. It can be screwed and nailed well but gluing properties are often variable. It finishes well and takes an excellent stain and polish.

Uses: Fine furniture, shop fitting, cabinets, gun stocks, musical instruments and decorative veneer.
