Qld Silky Oak Timber Veneer – Queensland Silky Oak (Grevillea robusta) is grown along the east coast of Australia. It can grow to 20-30m tall with a trunk diameter of up to 1m. It is known for the quality of its wood which is used in cabinet making.
The main feature of Qld Silky Oak is the grain structure. Medulla rays (radial cells that transport fluid between centre and outside of the trunk) are very pronounced in the timber when the wood is quartersawn. The heartwood colour is a light to medium reddish brown with grey to light brown rays. The Qld Silky Oak timber veneer texture is fairly coarse and the grain straight.
Also known as Southern Silky Oak, Silky Oak, Silver Oak, Lacewood or Australian Silver Oak.
