What Is Messmate Timber?

Messmate timber, also known as Eucalyptus obliqua, is a native Australian hardwood. It’s known for its striking grain patterns, ranging from subtle, straight lines to intricate swirls and knots.

The colour tone is equally impressive, featuring tones from pale browns to warm, honey hues, often interspersed with darker streaks.

This unique blend of aesthetics and robustness makes Messmate a favourite among timber enthusiasts.

The Origin of Messmate

Messmate trees thrive in the forests of southeastern Australia, particularly in Victoria and Tasmania.

The timber has been used by Indigenous Australians for centuries, valued for its strength and versatility. Today, it continues to be a sustainable and environmentally friendly choice for furniture making, ensuring that your beautiful dining table not only looks good but also supports responsible forestry practices.

New Boards vs. Reclaimed Boards

One of the unique aspects of Messmate timber is the option between new boards and reclaimed boards.

New boards offer a pristine, uniform look, perfect for modern designs.

On the other hand, reclaimed boards bring history and character, often featuring marks and imperfections that tell a story. Reclaimed Messmate is an excellent choice for those who appreciate rustic, vintage aesthetics.
