Australian single species timbers

Whilst in addition to the timber above our East coast timber mills also offer Tallowwood, Turpentine, Southern Blue Gum, Messmate, Stringy Bark, Grey Box, Rose Gum and a host of other eucalypts.
Australian blended species timbers
Like wines where grape varieties are some times blended, so to with timber floors where on occasions those timbers that maybe different species but a very similar look are mixed and blended into a single floor. In most cases these are lesser known timbers often harvested in smaller volumes that still make perfectly good timber floors when combined with other timbers of similar appearance. Different timber mills tend to provide their own names for their blended offerings to help provide an identity for their offerings. Timber floor offerings that fall into this category include Tasmanian Oak, Victorian Ash, Australian Chestnut and Australian Beech. In some cases though timber mills simply refer to blends by their predominant colour tones such as “mixed whites” or “mixed reds”
Whilst Bosch Timber Floors biggest selling timbers are from right here in Australia we also source and sell a wide range of international timbers as well. The well-known European Oaks and French Oaks have been a very popular trend in recent years with the ability to stain these timbers to specific colours for customers wanting to achieve a colour tone that fits closely with the palette of their décor. Other timbers sourced from Europe and the USA include, Beech, Maple, American White Oak, and Walnut. There are also several timbers that Bosch timber floors offer from time to time originating out of Asia. These include Kempas, Hevea, Batu and Merbau.
