Australian Blackwood Origin:

Native to Tasmania and eastern Australia; also introduced to Africa, South America, and southern Asia.

Australian Blackwood Workability:

Australian Blackwood is easily worked with both hand and machine tools, though figured wood and pieces with interlocked grain can cause tearout. Australian Blackwood turns, glues, stains, and finishes well. Responds well to steam bending.

Australian Blackwood Uses:

Veneer, furniture, cabinetry, musical instruments, gunstocks, turned objects, and other specialty wood objects.


Color can be highly variable, but tends to be medium golden or reddish brown.

Janka Hardness:


Decay and Weather Resistance:

Rated as moderately durable regarding decay resistance, though susceptible to insect attack.
