What is it made out of ?
Sustainably sourced Australian Spotted Gum.
The grade of timber that we use is referred to as SELECT, and is the highest quality available.
It is highly unlikely to be free of defects. Noticeable amounts of gum vein, surface checking, tight knots and black specks are acceptable within the SELECT grading rules.
These defects give the timber its character, and will not be considered in the case of a refund being requested.
What are the important dimensions ?
Overall : 43mm Diameter x Various Lengths.
Maximum length available is approximately 3.5 metres (subject to availability).
We do sometimes have lengths up to 4.5 metres, but these are rare.
If you need something longer than 3.5 metres, then please contact us first to make sure we have it.
If we don't have anything longer in stock then you may need to join two shorter lengths together to make the length you require.
How should you finish it ?
If looking for a natural finish, then a clear lacquer will be fine; or you can use a stain to achieve your desired colour then use a clear lacquer to finish it off.
Speak to your local paint retailer for more info.
