sheoak wood


Sheoak from Australia is one of the rarest and most spectacular woods in the world.  It has a dark red to orange-purple heartwood and can be highly figured.  Sheoak is hard to find in sizable boards so it is best suited for smaller projects.  Firelaced Sheoak looks like an explosion of splendor, with layers of figure and colors swirling, trying to escape.  This figure pattern is very rare and prized for the highest end applications.

  • Very rare and expensive
