Variation disclaimer

Timber is a natural material. Variation in appearance and properties is an enticing part of designing and building with real timber! Each fibre in each plank in each project is uniquely designed by nature. We strive in good faith to present you with the most accurate portrayal of what you can expect in your timber by using images, past job portfolios, detailed information and samples, the other part of this responsibility is advising you that your timber's appearance WILL vary from these guides. Please use this information as a guide only.

Timber has many natural features that tell the story of the living tree. The features seen in Tasmanian Mytrle are:
• Insect trails
• Knots
• Burrs (aka burls)
This product is available in the following grades:
Select grade; is mostly clean boards with minimal natural features. Select grade gives a more uniform, clean, sophisticated and minimal appearance. Select grade can be thought of as the top third cleanest timber and is equivalent to a 'classic grade'.
High feature grade; has the highest amount of natural features. A rough, rustic look that shows off the timber in its rawest natural beauty. As a rule of thumb, you can expect at least one sizeable feature in every board. This is equivalent to a 'feature grade', 'natural grade' or 'rustic grade'.

Installation summary

19mm solid strip floorboards are typically suitable for gluing and nailing over joist, battens, plywood, particleboard, or existing timber floors. They come in a raw state and need to be sanded and finished after installation. THIS IS NOT A DIY FRIENDLY PRODUCT, only an experienced installer and sander or a very experienced carpenter should attempt the installation of solid timber floorboards.


Timber is a truly renewable resource, a mature tree is harvested, a young tree grows in its place and a few decades later is ready for harvesting again. Australia's vast forests are carefully, conservatively managed to ensure a responsible amount of wood is harvested. Timber uses a relatively small amount of energy during processing compared to other building materials like metals and concrete, the timber itself is a carbon storer and has a long working life.
