Natural Timber Decor Species Range

Natural Timber Decor is committed to utilising only Australian hardwoods, reclaimed or recycled wherever possible or at least harvested under controlled conditions and with sustainable forestry practices. We do not utilise any imported timbers, let alone rainforest timbers.



Our flagship timber, sourced from several riverland locations, is available in a range of rich red tones and with varying degrees of gum pockets which, when filled with clear or stained resin, add lots of “personality” to any furniture piece. Additionally, fiddleback/flame effects will make for spectacular looking items. Redgum slabs can be used to great effect on table/cabinet/bench tops and Redgum burl, with its deliciously chaotic grain patterns, lends itself to very special coffee tables, mirrors or giftware pieces.



Jarrah displays deep brown-red tones and a flowing grain structure. This Western Australian timber will add to the warmth and luxury of any application without strident overtones. Jarrah slabs can also be used to great effect on table/cabinet/bench tops.



Blackwood is sourced mostly from Tasmania. A range of colours from honey to chocolate brown with an occasional reddish tint, random fiddleback patches and great finish qualities lend themselves to any type of furniture that will blend perfectly with most environments.

Victorian Ash/Tasmanian Oak


It is sourced mostly from Victoria and is blond/creamy coloured, with varying degrees of gum vein that enables a range of different looks. Abundantly available and economic in cost, it suitable for a broad range of furniture pieces.



A close relative to Victorian Ash/Tasmanian Oak but with significantly more feature to give a strong “country” look. Sourced from locations in Victoria and Tasmania, it is at its best on table tops, but also in cabinetry.

Sydney Blue Gum


Its pink or deep cream tones and varying degrees of figure will give a light and modern look, yet keeping it classy, and is especially suited to tables and cabinets. This timber is sourced from locations near the NSW coast.

Northern Mahogany


Light, highly figured grain lends itself to great slab table or desk tops. Our stock of Mahogany originates from around Darwin, where trees planted after cyclone Tracy had to be cut as part of a management plan.

River Coobah


River Coobah, with its chocolate-brown tones or even two-toned pieces (brown-cream), lends itself to fantastic mirror frames or smaller pieces like coffee tables, etc.
