Just a few pics of the timber I bought this morning at Maleny.

Nice looking wood. I really love the hairy oak, first time I’ve seen it. Where does it grow?

Nice wood! A new dust-mop for the shop? Dog-mop maybe!

The dog looks like he may want to stain the wood a nice yellow for you ;)

Hairy Oak grows mainly in western Queensland where it is normally drier than the coast.. but lately have been floods out there. Only small trees around the 1’ diameter. but the medula rays are outstanding. Also very dense and stable timber.,
