Features of Tallowwood Timber
With a Janka hardness rating of 8.6, tallowwood timber is a popular choice for flooring and decking applications. However, this resilient timber is widely used for many other outdoor applications like fencing, decking, pergolas, cladding and framing. Internal applications include joinery, furniture, posts, portal frames and turnery.
Its heartwood ranges from dark to pale yellow-brown with infrequent tones of olive green and an almost white sapwood. The texture is fairly coarse with interlocking grains. Its veins are surprisingly gum-free, which creates a strikingly unique visual.
It easily accepts stain, paint and polish and fixing it is easy with standard fasteners and fixings. Tallowwood features a distinct lustre and true to its name, it feels greasy to the touch.
