Grey box (Eucalyptus microcarpa) is a dense, highly durable Australian hardwood with a fine, even texture which sands and polishes to a superb finish. The heartwood is a pale, yellowish-brown (sometimes with a pink tinge) and paler sapwood. Grain usually interlocked, often producing an attractive fiddleback figure. Uniquely shaped slabs from a limited stock of local rescued timber are available now. The colour difference to Red Gum is highlighted in the photo showing Red Gum slabs at rear & Grey Box in front.
