Contrary to its species name, Blackbutt actually has quite a light timber shade. Rather, the name Blackbutt comes from this species’ tree form, whereby the bottom area of the bark is a deep black. Like Tasmanian Oak, Blackbutt creates a cosy feel to your room, thanks to its warm, but light shading. This classic Australian timber variety has a medium level of contrast, over a uniform texture.
