Caledonian Oak

carnarvonia araliifolia

Also known as ‘black oak’ because of its incredibly dark tones this timber is known for high decorative applications. It has a straight grain with very large ray figure. It is easy to work with but may need care with gluing.

Availability is limited as trees need to be large for dark heartwood and a very tight harvesting regime is practised by Kirby fine timber.
