Sydney Bluegum Handrails
Saturday, October 19, 2013
Sydney Bluegum is an Australian hardwood grown on the east coast. It is red in colour, but not quite as dark a red as Jarrah.
Although it is extremely hard, it is quite a good timber to machine. We don't get a big call for it on a day to day basis, but recently we had a request from a stairbuilder in Sydney to manufacture some of our Heritage Handrail design in Sydney Blue Gum.
We had some material in stock, so we machined the wood, laminated it together and then ran it through our moulder to produce the final profile, as can be seen in the photos below.
