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.
