Whether its home improvement or an indoor building project, Tasmanian Oak is a great hardwood with lots of all-round features. Its a classic all-round Australian hardwood that absorbs paint and stains well, its a very easy wood to work with and will look beautiful for many years to come.
Tasmanian Oak or “Tassie Oak” is not a species, but a mixture of two or more species from a group of about 8 species with similar appearance and features. The main species included are Mountain Ash, Alpine Ash and Messmate.
This Australian hardwood that grows in the mountainous areas of Tasmania, Victoria and South East NSW, is a versatile wood perfect for both construction and interior applications, including flooring, paneling, architraves and skirting.
Tassie Oak is light in colour, varying from straw to reddish brown with intermediate shades of cream to pink. It has excellent staining qualities, which allow ready matching with other wood finishes or furnishings.
Tasmania Oak Is More Than Just A Wooden Floorboard
Tasmanian Oak timber is best suited to indoor applications and furniture due its low to moderate durability. Flooring, paneling and high-end joinery are some of its more common applications. It is also used for protected structural applications, such as timber framing.
This wood offers great all round workability as it is a strong and stable hardwood. It planes, sands, finishes and glues well. This makes this hardwood a perfect choice for internal applications and furniture.
