Description:

Wandoo, a native species to Western Australia, is most commonly found growing in shallow valleys or on low ridges. Sometimes referred to as "White Gum", it is a member of the Eucalyptus family.

A very dense wood, Wandoo needs to be dried carefully to avoid checking and end splits. The heartwood color is gold to reddish brown and sap is usually minimal. It is most commonly used for furniture and flooring.

Another fascinating characteristic of Wandoo is its "wild natural edge"- it looks as if it is from a different world.

Note: All pictures of boards that appear wet, have been wiped with denature alcohol to help show natural color. We use denature alcohol because it evaporates and does not effect the moisture content of the wood. Also, please keep in mind that the pictures below are only examples of the wood and not actual products available for sale.
