Jarrah

Also known as: Western Australian Mahogany, Swan Mahogany

Botanical Name: Eucalyptus marginata

Origin: Western Australia

Description: Colour varies from pinkish red to rich dark red-brown and, when polished, Jarrah can look similar to a fine old Mahogany. Usually flat cut, to produce crown veneer, occasionally with a touch of figure. Some larger logs may be quartered. It is fairly coarse textured and the grain is often interlocked. Supplies are now almost gone as there are now restrictions on the felling of older growth trees. Veneerstyle Jarrah is now regularly used as a substitute for panelling and fine cabinet work.
