Flooring, staircase construction, joinery, benchtops.
Brushbox grows in wet range country from central New South Wales to central Queensland.Â Until recently, flooring and laminated beams were virtually itâ€™s only applications. Nowadays Bushbox also finds application in sliced veneer, staircase manufacture and to a limited degree, internal joinery. Brushbox varies in colour from a dark pink to reddish brown; its resistance to wear contributes to it being considered an excellent flooring timber. Brushbox, for various reasons is difficult to dry, because of silica content has a dulling effect on cutters and not easy to work. Air-dry density is approximately 900kg/m3.
