Hi all,
In view of the recent interest in Aussie hardwoods and their availability in the US, I thought I’d show you all some Jarrah, which is part of a dining table I am constructing for real money!! The table itself will be 8ftxapprox4 ft and is made of solid 2” Jarrah. I hope this will ispire someone to try a project using Jarrah, which is easier to get in the US. I think it is a beautifully warm but with a strong character. I’ll show the table when its finished. The timber has been oiled with Scandinavian oil and sanded through from 80g (bwlt sander) up to 400g (Festool RO 150 ROS), oiled then taken through to 4000g. it has yet to be waxed.
Pic 1 is the oiled, sealed timber, pic 2 is the sanded top not finished.

Jarrah is by far one of my most favorite timbers to work with. I am very interested in seeing it in the states. That means I can use it when I get home. Where did you get it from? The table looks great too.

Don, splendid job on the table .
I have to ask , if you know, what is Jarrah botanically?
I see no equal for reds from any other local.
